RAS Portraits...Frankie Paul
from 5 (excellent) to 1 (poor)|
|Vocals : 5||Backing : 4||Production : 4||Sound quality : 4/5||Sleeve : 4|
RAS recently released the Frankie Paul "A We Rule" set, produced by Prince Jazzbo. Three tracks from this set plus tunes from the "Freedom" album (1996), 3 cuts from the 1994 cd "Hard Work" and songs from the late eighties clash (with Pinchers) album "Dancehall Duo"
can be found on this delightful compilation. Frankie Paul is one of the most prolific singers in the history of reggae music. In the eighties Frankie Paul flooded the reggae market with his tunes. He was and still is one of the very few to overcome an overkill syndrome. His voice has power and dignity, and his interpretations of other people's material is mostly masterful. If you're not familiar with the Jamaican Stevie Wonder, Frankie Paul, this midprice cd could be just the right thing for you ! |
