A very rare recording from the late and great Peter Tosh, recorded in august 1966 together with Bunny Wailer and Constantine Walker backed by The Soul Brothers at Studio One. This is the original pre-release, easily spotted by the arrow-pattern used on the label and the "7/6"-stamps. B-side is "Time To Turn" by the Soulettes, a group led by Rita Marley. The matrix numbers are CC DODD - 64 and WIRL CS 1477-1.
This record does not turn up very often so take your chance!
"Can't You See" certainly doesn't sound Jamaican, as it's more of a mod garage tune inspired by bands like Rolling Stones and The Who. It's a record with a historic value as this kind of music wasn't recorded by any Jamaican artists at the time, at least not in Jamaica! "Time To Turn" is a slowly paced ska-ballad in a girl group style.
Label condition: In VG+ shape. On A-side someone have written "Delroy Wilson", but this is incorrect. The tune "Can't You See" was included on the LP "The History Of Ska Vol. 1" but wrongly credited to Delroy Wilson. B-side has "Time To Turn" written on it. Otherwise the labels look fine.
Vinyl condition: In EX- / VG++ shape. The vinyl still has it's orginal sheen and looks almost brand new exept for some very very light marks and scuffs. It sounds amazingly good for being such an old record and doesn't jump or stick or anything anoying. You won't find it in any better condition than this! I will try to add soundclips later.

The humming sound you hear is from my old Ferguson turntable when I plug it into my MacBook, and not from the record.
