The most splendid, replete, big-hearted, weak-hearted as it turned out, and jolly bugger most of us ever met. As for me, you may ask how I'll remember him, what I thought of him.
Unfortunately there I run out of words. Perhaps you will forgive me if I turn from my own feelings to the words of another splendid bugger: W. This is actually what I want to say: "Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone.
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone. Silence the pianos and with muffled drum, Bring out the coffin Let aeroplanes circle, moaning overhead, Scribbling on the sky the message: He is Dead. Put crepe bows 'round the necks of public doves, Let traffic policemen wear black, cotton gloves.

This CD can be found very inexpensively. It features liner notes that put Stanley into context with calypso and mento.

Two tracks lean towards calypso rhythms. Other mento covers on this CD are less obvious from the song listing. It's actually "Maintenance" with some additional lyrics first. The Revolutionaries Sly and Robbie, Tommy McCook, and others provide the instrumentation which is primarily reggae more than mento-reggae.
One track, "You Mother Never Know", has a calypso influence. There are two songs from the mento repertoire. There are also a couple of songs that Stanley recorded on other releases, such as "Soldering".
These are different versions. Along the right and bottom are some random samples of Stanley's many singles. G ' S Records? Oh Jah Jah ? Thomas Chicken" by Stanley Beckford in both 7" and 12" formats.

Komina label from the same recommended CD is "Broom Weed". The b-side is not a dub version as in the single above, but another good track from the CD, "Bredda Ram Puss".
