ReggaeOne | Eroktik City, MD | 07/23/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"UpTown Top Ranking is a classic song by Althea & Donna which was a BIG hit in 1977. Althea Forrest and Donna Reid were 17 and 18 respectively when the song was bubbling on the charts. This cd is full of the style from the Golden Age of reggae. Althea & Donna helped blaze the trail for other female artists. Produced and engineered with Karl Pitterson at the controls. Musicians like Sly & Robbie, Earl "Chinna" Smith, Bernard "Touter" Harvey, Scully, Tommy McCook, Vin Gordon and Herman Marquis provide the crucial instrumental journey. Even though I already had the classic song (it's included on various complilations) this cd is an essential addition to my collection. This release is an All Time Classic."

"Uptown Top Ranking is the Best and Top Ranking reggae song in History period . It is still on the charts in the Caribbean , U.S.A and Europe - still bubbling - still fresh - still roots - still hot - original and still rude gyul style . the new 2000-2002 video that goes with the song is the best video I have seen with the sexiest dancing - moving that waist and shaking those hips [a strong wine]- most attractive dreadlocks roots lady I have seen ."

"Uptown Top Ranking.

This is a great roots album, sounding like much of the roots music from the mid to late 70's. Sly & Robbie riddim section aboard and heavenly harmonies from Althea & Donna. A classic that needs to be in any reggae lover's collection."
