CD Reviews

You must get this
Sean M. Kelly | Portland, Oregon United States | 09/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Folks, if more than a "best of" cd is what you crave for your rocksteady or Dekker collection, this is the album to get, and let me tell you, it sounds as incredibly fresh now as it must have sounded then. Jah smiled broadly on Dekker when this lp was being made.Anyone who has an "oldies" format radio station and who listens to it has heard the classic "Israelites" at least once on it, but probably didn't recognize the rocksteady beats propelling it. Now you will know!! and you can impress your friends with you new-found knowledge. A good thing! :)The rest of the lp is top notch, as well. Numerous hits grace this lp, including Jimmy Cliffs' "You Can Get It If You Really Want," "It Mek," "That's the Way Life Goes," "Pickney Girl," "Rude Boy Train," "I Believe," "Nincompoop," and "Peace of Mind." All of the aforementioned were top 20 (at least) hits for Dekker. How many lps can you think of that have that many hits on it?! Even the Beatles can't claim that!I can't stress enough the importance of this cd for your rocksteady, Jamaican, or ANY collection. Get it! It really is THAT good."
