Baggariddim, not to be confused with the EP Little Baggariddim released in the U.S., is the sixth album by UB40, released in 1985. Most of the tracks are reworkings of previous UB40 recordings that originally appeared on Labour of Love and Geffery Morgan, here showcasing guest singers and "toasters" on vocals. Guest artists famously included Chrissie Hynde, the leader of the rock/new wave band The Pretenders, and Douglas Gilbert, lead Trombonist with the London Symphony Orchestra (LSO). In the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium this album was released in a gatefold sleeve containing an additional 3-track 12" EP. This album features two UK hits, "I Got You Babe", a duet with Hynde that reached #1 in the UK and the #3 follow-up "Don't Break My Heart", which was the 'B-side' of "I Got You Babe" ("Theme from Labour of Love") with vocals added
