Prince Lincoln Thompson started his career as a member of the vocal group The Tartans and recorded for Studio One between 1970-72 before he formed the Royal Rasses in 1975. With these Royal Rasses he delivered us timeless roots anthems such as "Humanity", "Kingston 11" and Love the way it should be". So there's no denying that Prince Lincoln is one of the giants of Jamaican music and he's been far too quiet for far too long. He's back here like he was never away and his finely crafted songs are as considered and thoughtful as ever. His arrangements are also a joy for the ear. After all it was well worth the wait as it most definitely lives up to all our expectations. Beautiful contemporary roots music !
