Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote In 1960's and 1970's Jamaica, it was common practice for local musicians to record reggae versions of the hit soul, R&B, and disco songs that they could hear on clear nights from the Miami radio stations. The 24 songs in this collection are prime examples of that practice, and 30-somethings who grew up hearing the original versions of these songs on the radio will be sure to get a kick out of the reggae versions offered here. As one might expect, the quality of the interpretations varies quite a bit: Susan Cadogan's rendition of "Fever" is not quite as good as Junior Byles', but it packs quite a sensual wallop, and Bruce Ruffin's version of the Simon & Garfunkel hit "Cecilia" is also very worth hearing. The criminally overlooked harmony group Zap Pow deliver a fine version of the Gamble & Huff classic "If You Don't Know Me By Now". At the other end of the spectrum are Inner Circle's completely unnecessary reggae arrangement of "Rock the Boat," and Dennis Brown's undoing of "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay." But even the mildly embarrassing moments provide lots of good, kitschy fun. Recommended. ~ Rick Anderson
