Rating : (1 to 5 stars)

Since last year's "Boom boom dance" bashment there was some kind of quietness when it came to releases on the "African Star" label. However, the wait is now over and it was worthwhile, especially for all lovers of roots style reggae. "African Star" has released a selection of new titles on an update of the old Gatherers/Upsetters "Words of my mouth" riddim. The great thunderball himself Capleton is in excellent shape, delivering a tough cut across the aforementioned riddim, a typically fiery judgement call. Truly a tune that can be reckoned to some of his best. Yami Bolo - a sweet-voiced "roots and culture" singer from the very start - lives up to expectations as he delivers a solid cut in his inimitable style. The cultural deejay Terry Ganzie was among the most original of the fresh crop of deejays to emerge in the mid-nineties. His "Yad out", dealing with "ganja and police", is a decent addition to his repertoire.
