CD Reviews

From Bam Bam to Cherry Oh!
Peter G. Samek | Maplewood, NJ USA | 08/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If You Like, early Desmond Dekker, and Toots And The Maytals, this is a great record. My two year old son's favorite song is "Boom Shaka Lakka". You just wish there were more songs on this CD. If you like Jimmy Cliff's "The harder they come" you'll love this."
