"The Bleechers (Leo Graham, Wesley Martin, and a third singer known only as Sammy) were a Jamaican harmony trio who formed around 1968, when they performed some studio work for producer J.J. Johnson. Known for a series of outstanding singles they recorded with famed producer Lee 'Scratch' Perry, including the ultra-rare smash hit 'Come Into My Parlour' and the brilliant 'Check Him Out.' Sadly no album was ever completed. 'Come Into My Parlour' is a killer Reggae anthem adored by fans, on par with the likes of 'John Jones' or 'Hold Down' previously released on Harlem Shuffle Records. Extremely popular, it has never been repressed since, it is impossible to find in good condition and is very much in demand. With its suggestive lyrics, bold organ, pulsing beat and lovely melody, it is easy to see why 'Parlour' is still a favorite 50 years after its release. Essential! 'Check Him Out' is a cheerful and infectious Reggae tune with wonderful harmonies from the group. A marvelous track. Listening closely, it appears to be a musical advertisement giving directions to a record store in Kingston that Perry owned at the time!!! Like the A Side, the cut has never seen a 7", until now."
