Albums you will never forget. Some albums
are good from the start to the stop. Like
this album. It's an album in the so-called
Showcase Tradition: all tracks are extended.
First, you'll hear the original track, with
the full lyrics, and right after that the
DUB version. All in one mix. This creates a
special feeling of excitement, especially
when the vocal goes over into the Dub mix.
Killer vocal versions from Black Uhuru
in, as some say, their best congregation.
Puma Jones, Michael Rose and Duckie Simpson.
It is a fact, that Mikael Rose has one of
the strongest voices in reggae. It is also a
fact, that Sly and Robbie created some of
the hardest riddims in reggae. And these two
are combined on this album. You will even
hear Keith Richards (as some say) in a
distorted guitar riff in a beautiful song
called "Shine Eye Gal". Plastic
Smile is another beauty. The moment the
vocal turns into a version (the original
into the dub version) always makes me exited
on this album. Long echo's of Mikael's
voice, mmm I love them.
