"Too excited at finding a CD with 'Murderer' on it (can't find it anywhere), I unfortunately didn't spot that this is a Sly and Robbie mix of Barrington Levy's originals. Desperately disappointing. The only thing murdered are Barrington Levy's songs. Don't make the same mistake!"
A horrible mangling of the true Barrington.

"I saw this CD and picked up by looking at the tracklisting alone..I thought it had so many Barrington Levy classic song's I've wanted to get ahold of for quite a while: "Murderer", "Under Mi Sensi", "Survival", etc..
needless to say, I failed to see that this CD came out in 1993, and had additional production by Sly and Robbie. (If I'd seen that, I wouldn't have bought it)..Basically this CD is chock full of ... dancehall beats and remixes, and Barrington's beautiful voice and his blue mountain yodel style vocals are just mangled in these horrible beats (very very few rocksteady riddims are apparent).
The only good songs on the album (and the only songs I will listen to) is the "Under Mi Sensi" re-work, which is actually quite a dope remix, and really works, and "Go There", which I hadn't heard before, but is actually a great love song, in a cheesy kind of way.
If you're looking for a great Barrington comp with many of his previous hits, check "Broader than Broadway: The Best Of", or for a true jamacain's compilation choice, check "The Barrington Levy Collection", which came out on Greensleeves a couple years ago.."
