  • VC - By His Deeds / Undecided / Don't Think Twice / By His Deeds (Instrumental)
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
VC (aka Valton Craigie) - born in England to Jamaican parents - created a real buzz on the international reggae scene in November of 2000 with his Jamaican hit record "By His Deeds". Although the singer's first ever record it is coming like a bona fide classic and thus it's obvious that "By His Deeds" quickly became one of the most anticipated roots tunes. VC came seemingly out of nowhere, but actually, VC has been involved in the music business since the early nineties when he started out as a discjockey with a sound called "Legacy Disco", doing his work for the likes of Shaggy and other top names in the business. Furthermore he also played music in bands in Jamaica and Florida.

This CD single features the aforementioned excellent "By His Deeds" and its very enjoyable instrumental version. Besides that one is treated to two new cuts by VC, namely "Undecided" and "Don't Think Twice". However, if you expect tunes in the same vein as "By His Deeds" you might get disappointed. Both pieces are delivered in a completely different mood. "Undecided" is a straight forward lovers tune with a strong "Big People Music" feel. And also "Don't Think Twice" deals with matters of the heart, performed over an R'n'B flavored musical backdrop.
