All the music on this album is dedicated to the memory of Papa Wade McKinney (of Fari Productions International, Nassau) who died from Sickle Cell Anaemia (S.C.D.) complications in November 1999. All proceeds to go to the Sickle Cell Society. BamJimba is described as "a one-man band comprising about twenty musicians and one brilliant producer/engineer." The songs here are based on Dennis Brown's interpretation of the classic "Heavenless" riddim, a song from 1983 he and producer Joe Gibbs entitled "Your Love's Gotta Hold One Me", which happens to be one of the man's best tunes!
On this adventurous as well as intriguing album you will experience an inspirational sound collage of reggae, roots, jazz, tecno and dub. The opening tune stays pretty close to the original Dennis Brown cut, but Nuestro Amor One is a freestyle jazz exploration of the song, while Love Your Blues adds more tempo, rush and beat to the melody, resulting in a hypnotical and danceable tune of more than 9 minutes! Chill out time with Dublove Al Pablo, while the next song From Cabbage Beach To Cuba brings you to more Latin flavored places. After revisiting track two, here as part two -Nuestro Amor Two, the circle is closed as we return to One Love, with strong Dennis Brown influences.
What can we say? It's hard to describe our feelings and thoughts as we were spinning this disc. But one thing we know for sure, you'll have to follow the flow of the album and then.....
