Great British instrumental reggae single inscribed to Pete Nu and titled “Morrocan Reggae”. Obviously released during the 1980s, the record comes without a cover, just like a regular reggae single. The tracks have a touch of classical music and jazz, and superb arrangements, too. Instruments include piano, bass, drums, flute and clarinet, all played by consummate, unidentified musicians. The B-side sounds like the obligatory dub version, with prominent bass and straightforward drums – plus strangely detuned piano at the beginning of the track. The lead-out grooves bear the inscription “A Porky Prime Cut”, signaling the master was done by British sound engineer George Peckham. Pete(r) Nu had a duo with singer Maggie Nichols in the 1980s – they released 2 LPs on Leo Records: Nicols ‘N’ Nu in 1985 and Don’t Assume in 1987. It seems Peter Nu now lives in New Orleans.
