Bushman (real name Dwight Duncan) is a dedicated roots reggae artist, who hails from Prospect Beach in the country parish of St. Thomas JA. He was discovered by the internationally renowned duo Steely & Clevie, with whom he achieved instant success with his debut single "Grow Your Natty". It was followed by his second hit single "Call The Hearse", which further increased his profile. In a time when artists such as Luciano, Sizzla, and Anthony B revived culturally conscious roots reggae, Greensleeves released his debut album "Nyah Man Chant" in 1997. This stunning set brought Bushman international recognition, and was followed by the aptly titled "Total Commitment" set for Waterhouse producer King Jammy. This album was another strong album and confirmed the promise Bushman had been showing. "Higher Ground" was the second King Jammy produced album that maintained the quality of his releases throughout. With these albums and a string of hit singles Bushman secured himself a place among the most serious of the new generation of conscious performers that emerged in the second half of the 1990s.

So far Greensleeves has only released sets of true veterans in their "Most Wanted" collection series including Yellowman, Ranking dread, Eek-A-Mouse, Wailing Souls and Johnny Osbourne. Bushman is the first artist from a younger generation who is chosen to become part of the "Most Wanted" series. The album collects some of Bushman's nicest tunes, with bulk of the titles produced by King Jammy and Steely & Clevie. The entertaining compilation starts with the hit "Call The Hearse" on the "Skettel" riddim and furthermore draws together some of Bushman's strongest testaments including his initial hit single "Grow Your Natty" on the "Politician" riddim, the huge "Fire Bun A Weak Heart" on Marley's "Hypocrites", the herb anthem "Cannabis" that uses the "General" riddim, "Worries And Problems", and "Step Pon Crime".

A great introduction for those who are new to Reggae and still have to discover Bushman's material. A great collection that bears repeated listening!
