CD Reviews

Great example of pre-dancehall reggae
Andre M. | Mt. Pleasant, SC United States | 06/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Big Youth is not well-known in the US. But he performed great reggae in an appealing ROOTS style (note- "Roots Reggae" would be equivalent to Otis Redding/Sam Cooke style R&B). The remake of Delroy Wilson's "Dancing Mood" will make you smile. "Time Alone Will Tell" is helped by an appealing harmonica solo, and "Roots Foundation" sums up the positivity that most of the reggae of the pre-dancehall (Reggae's present-day equivalent to rap) was all about. A very worthwhile purchase."
