Six vocal cuts from reggae vets on three new double A sided 12" singles produced by Chuck Million for Mac Dada Productions (distributed by VP Records). Mikal Rose has been one of the most prolific singers in the last year and a half, with a score of singles among three vocal albums in that time. Mikal Rose's remake of the Black Uhuru classic (not the first time he redoes this tune and probably not the last) adds nothing to the original, but it's a nice effort after all on a riddim with a strong roots vibe. Almost the same can be said of Sluggy's remake of a tune he first recorded for Philip Smart. This one, however, makes a better impression than Mikal Rose's cut. The two best cuts belong to Sugar Minott and Cornell Campbell who deliver a real solid effort. Their singing style blends perfectly with the riddim, which they use to its fullest. Dennis Brown's delivery is disappointing and gets boring real soon as the lyrics and singer are far from inspired. Junior Delgado's cut sounds much better and has more energy, but it fails to keep you involved till the end of the song.
