Rating : (1 to 5 stars)

New York based reggae label "Easy Star Records" keeps on releasing excellent 7" singles. Check out Rob Symeonn's "Anything for Jah", Father Sweet's "Sight of an Eagle", and Ruff Scott's "What goes around". Their latest release is by a new talent, called Ossie Dellimore. Produced by Michael G., recorded and mixed in New York, Ossie Dellimore delivers a really stunning debut single, complete with an appealling dub version. It's a solid traditional-style riddim wich is both original and has a modern flavor. Strictly reality lyrics, and Ossie's voice reminiscent of the late great Peter Tosh plus the subtle guitar solo (thanks Ronnie Butler !) makes this release worth purchasing.
