Synopsis

Amazon.com
This roundup of 19--count 'em--mega boomshots demonstrates unequivocably that Lady Saw is not just reggae's most gifted female. She belongs to a genderless, genreless elite whose recording and performing skill and chemistry transcends musical and cultural divides. Picking out highlights is nearly impossible, but to name a few, "If Him Lef," "Good Wuk," "It's Raining," and "Eh-Em" present Saw at her most gloriously bawdy and satirical. Yet her most awesome feat just might be navigating the Scylla and Charybdis of reggae's testosterone-saturated dancehalls and "uptown" Jamaica's "little old lady in the Cotswolds" prudery to arrive intact at favored status for hardcore and culture reggae fans alike. "Best of" signals loud and clear that this inheritor of twin legacies--the storytelling Caribbean women-warrior and the laser-tongued comic beauty--is poised to take over arenas beyond reggae. --Elena Oumano

I HAD TO SAY IT!
06/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is only the second reggae cassette I have bought and it is one of the best. Since I have the cassette,it is missing the last five songs. I decided I would purcase the CD later on. On this 14 track version, firmly enjoyed her impressive songwriting, D.J.ing ,rapping and singing.I would love to see Lady Saw and Patra team up and do some duets. This highlights on this compilation are tracks 1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11,12,13,14. I had to say it. This is the best to start with for cuorious people interested in reggae artists and it is the perfect introduction to Lady Saw!"
This is a dancehall MUST HAVE.

"This CD should definitely be in your collection if you are a DIE HARD dancehall fan. Lady Saw at her best. As the title says,this CD is raw, but you should expect nothing less from Lady Saw. She has a unique way of expressing her experiences of love and sex."
Excellent! Highly Recommended
