What an excellent series this is turning out to be. "Reggae Max" not only covers renown classic Jamaican artists such as Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Sugar Minott, but also the current top English artists get the "Reggae Max" treatment. Sylvia Tella is the first female artist to be included in the series, which became almost inevitable as she was awarded "the best British female vocalist" by the recently formed "Peoples Reggae Awards". Next to this she was - without doubt - the most prolific female reggae artist in the U.K. during the last eighteen months, scoring hit after hit with songs like "Mother nature", "Happy home", "Jamaica land" and "What's love got to do". All these hits - and more outstanding tunes - are included on this disc. This collection of Sylvia Tella's past and present work shows us that she has the ability to excel in strong message songs as well as in lovers tunes.
