WACKIES

Three front-rank reggae singers with extensive credits for such producers as Coxsone Dodd, Augustus Pablo and Glen Brown whose work at Wackie's without question includes their very best. Originally two 10s.

The two Horace Andy cuts nod to Studio One: an interpretation of Little Roy's Prophesy reworks Peanut Vendor with the bebop artfulness of the Sound Dimension; while My Heart Is Gone is a homage to the Ken Boothe classic.

The under-recorded Naggo Morris who replaced another Wackie's alumnus, Leroy Sibbles, in The Heptones is best remembered for his Joe Gibbs 45, Su Su Pon Rasta: here his soulful baritone is in just such searing form, and the track You Rest On My Mind is devastating.

Wayne Jarrett's opener likewise recasts a reggae evergreen for its rhythm, Keith and Tex' Tonight but now the music (co-produced by Sugar Minott, either side of the Bubble Up album) is darker and more burnished, with Jarrett's Horace-styled falsetto set off against nyabinghi percussion. Also featured are the only reggae interpretation of Lionel Richie's Truly you might like to hear, and a killer version of Don Carlos' Black Harmony.
