King Jammy returns with a new lick of a riddim he first produced back when he was Prince, namely Black Uhuru's "I Love King Selassie". So far he has voiced three versions across it. Morgan Heritage have once again teamed up with the producer with whom they scored one of their earlier hits a few years back, the herb smokers anthem "Give we a licence". With this new cut they add their comment to the current theological debate surrounding the more controversial pronouncements made by their Bobo brethren. A truly excellent single from Morgan Heritage who seem incapable of delivering a bad record. The very talented up-and-coming singer Paul Elliott delivers another solid "roots & culture" tune on the same riddim. Considering this record and some other recent outings of Paul Elliott this is really a singer well worth checking out now and in the future. Last but not least reggae vet Gregory Isaacs presents his version in his inimitable style. Although the "cool ruler" had become a more "miss" than "hit" artist he is obviously back on the right track. He has delivered some real good tunes lately for producers like Syl Gordon and Phillip "Fatis" Burrell and this King Jammy produced tune is no exception to it. Isaacs is in good shape and - with a nice addition of female backing vocals - has delivered a decent lovers tune.
