Item Description
The selections on this compilation demonstrate exactly how much Lowell 'Sly' Dunbar & Robert 'Robbie' Shakespeare have learned from the roots of reggae, American rhythm & blues and soul, and these versions of contemporary and vintage soul songs show Sly and Robbie at their very best on covers of Little Willie John's “Fever”, Al Wilson's “Show & Tell”, Tony Joe White's “Rainy Night In Georgia” (as covered in soul by Brook Benton), The Delfonics' “Don't Break Your Promise”, The Impressions' “You Must Believe Me”,The Spinners' “Could It Be I'm Falling In Love” and a brace of Marvin Gaye covers in “Sexual Healing” and “Inner City Blues”. All are sung with panache and feeling by the various vocalists and backed up with superior rhythms, showcased here with full-length versions, from Sly and Robbie. For over forty years they have contributed so much to the body of reggae music that they can truly be seen as its backbone.

This release is pressed on 180-gram virgin vinyl and comes in a gatefold sleeve with 20-page booklet (8.2” x 8.2”) with extensive liner notes by reggae expert, Noel Hawks.
