Artist & tune

  • Sugar Minott - Identify Yourself / Nitty Gritty - Used To Be My Lover
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
This 12" single brings us two extended versions of tunes delivered by respected singers Sugar Minott and the late Nitty Gritty. Both artists probably need no further introduction as they have become household names for any reggae dancehall fan. Sugar Minott delivers a real wicked cultural effort entitled "Identify", which comes across a riddim that literally leaps from the speakers due to a heavyweight bass. The same backdrop underpins Nitty Gritty who deals deals with matters of the heart in "Used To Be My Lover". A decent tune that benefits from the riddim, but in the end doesn't come as strong as Sugar Minott's piece. All in all an enjoyable 12" inch that brings some fine music from way back.
