Synopsis

Amazon.com
The cover photo boasts a steel band in full regalia, but don't be misled. This bright collection showcases an unnamed pop group having a ball mainly with Jamaican reggae classics, though strangely enough there's a vague Polynesian flavor to some of the arrangements. No matter. The real strengths here are vocals that do justice to Bob Marley's "No Woman, No Cry" and "I Shot the Sheriff," Jimmy Cliff's "You Can Get It If You Really Want," Desmond Dekker's ska masterpiece "The Israelites," and Ziggy Marley's "Tomorrow People." A must for backyard barbecues with jerk chicken on the menu.--Bob Tarte

Pasteurized

(3 out of 5 stars)

"This recording sounds a little like it was pasteurized for Canadian tastes. While it was recorded in the Caribbean, it does not sound like local artists were used."
