Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Noddy Virtue started his musical career some 10 years back. He recorded an album in 2009 and released an EP in 2010. He's a smooth reggae singer in the classic mold of artists like Freddie McGregor, Dennis Brown and John Holt. His latest release is a sultry do-over of Neil Diamond's 1972 smasher "Play Me". It's produced by King Jammy, who uses the "Heavenless" riddim for this tune. He rebuilt that riddim inna digital style in the mid-'80s and artists like Johnny Osbourne, Cocoa Tea, Leroy Gibbons, Admiral Bailey and Super Black voiced the riddim with considerable success. Thirty years later the riddim, with synth strings added, surfaces for this - you either love it or hate it - romantic outing by Noddy Virtue.
