This little known, but widely appreciated Reggae outfit led by Carlton Manning caught my eye before it caught my ear. A name like Carlton and the Shoes is just so simply humble that I was immediately enticed to give it a listen. I'm extremely glad I did, because what I discovered was a forgotten gem from the archives of Studio One. The Shoes' debut record however was meant to read Carlton and The Shades, but a misprint ended up labeling them Carlton and The Shoes and the name stuck.
