The renown Mighty Diamonds meet the somewhat underrated Tamlins. Two vocal groups - over the years amongst some of the best Jamaica has to offer - show their talents and skill in songs which bring back sweet memories. This really nice compilation CD contains fine harmony work on rhythms laid down by great musicians like Sly & Robbie, the Barrett brothers, Robbie Lyn, Willie Lindo, Dean Fraser, Tommy McCook, Flabba Holt, Lloyd Parks and many, many more. Picks from the past which sound just as good to us now as it did way back then.
