Synopsis

Amazon.com
The great tragedy of Garnett Silk's death lies in the fact that this man who fell victim to a freakish act of violence possessed such a pure and simple gift: the ability to create peaceful and beautiful music. Even though the artist has been taken from us, his body of work remains his legacy, and while there have been many greatest-hits compilations, 100% Silk ranks among the best. Anyone familiar with Silk will recognize the majority of the tracks. Harder-to-find songs like the guileless "Love Me or Leave Me" and the impassioned "God Is God" rest easily next to more familiar signature songs such as "Necessity" and "Zion in a Vision." These meditations enable the listener to remember that the simple act of living must be filled with joy and love. As the artist himself said, "Nothing can divide us." --Rebecca Levine

Simply The Best

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great introductory CD for any aspiring Garnett Silk fan. The 13 tracks on this CD represent some of Silk's best work. My personal favorites are Blessed Be The Almighty, Green Line, Spread The Love and Nothing Can Divide Us. Silk's songs are uplifting and meditating. He sings the virtues of praising the higher power and a global hummanity based on love and understanding. Silk's fame my never reach the heights of one Robert Nesta Marley but his songs are every bit as moving and thought provoking. Other recommended Garnett Silk CD's...... Garnett Silk Gold, It's Growing, Garnett Silk Live at Sunsplash 1994 and Strictly The Best #12 for the song 'Kingly Character', a MUST have for any Silk fan. Sit back, relax and enjoy the positive vibes that this man puts out."

"The late Garnett Silk (RIP) who is considered a Saint in the reggae circles truly produced his best work in "100% Silk". The album mostly focuses on unity of all especially in the tracks 'Nothing Can Divide Us' and 'Necesity'. The rest of the track are conscious tributed to the Almighty."
