Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Audio Remixers: Computer Paul; Stretch Armstrong .
Muze PNote Calling this compilation the ULTIMATE DANCEHALL COLLECTION is misleading on a number of counts. Firstly, dancehall music has been popular in Jamaica since the early '80s, but only became known in the United States in the early '90s. The music popular in U.S. urban nightclubs that is called "dancehall" is not exactly what is referred to as dancehall in Jamaica (some of these songs would be better classified as ragga tunes). Secondly, this compilation contains songs that are simply not dancehall tracks as the term would generally connote. Beres Hammond's "Putting Up a Resistance" and Garnett Silk's "Hello Mama Africa," with their slower tempos and protest-style lyrics, have little in common with Panhead's paean to spandex-clad ladies, "Punny Printer." Otherwise, this compilation is an enjoyable potluck of known and obscure modern reggae songs as it contains some of reggae's biggest hits of the '90s, like Dawn Penn's "You Don't Love Me (No, No, No)" and Sister Nancy's "Bam Bam."

- "...There are a couple of pleasant surprises on BUYAKA. For one, the disc avoids including...hits found on most dancehall compilations. There's also a welcome historical perspective present in the track choices..."
