Coptic Lion represses Mighty Diamonds and Earth & Stone

I recently obtained several new repressed 7″ vinyl 45s from the Coptic Lion label.  To their credit, there are several record labels that have been putting out quality represses lately, and Coptic Lion is the latest.
“Coming, Coming In” is a rare, unreleased classic roots vocal track sung over the “Born To Be Loved” riddim.  Produced by E. Brooks and P. Scabber at Channel One, probably in 1978/1979.  This pressing leaves a lot to be desired as the sound quality is below-average and many of the discs were punched off-center.
“Africa” originally appeared on the Mighty Diamonds’ groundbreaking 1976 debut “Right Time.” This brand new repress features a different mix, utilizing Diggory Kendrick’s “Lion Flute” riddim, and the tune takes on a much heavier vibe than the original.  Killer remix.
These are my very own high quality vinyl rips.
