'24K Gold II' is the follow up to volume 1 and is also a 24 track mega-mix of classic
dancehall hits featuring tunes from 1979 through 1990. The album concept is the same and offers the listener a pleasant musical journey through reggae's history and features some of the greatest names of reggae music. Singers like Frankie Paul, Dennis Brown, Junior Reid, Sugar Minott, Sanchez, Barrington Levy and Admiral Tibet deliver both cultural tunes as well as lovers tracks. Their biggest hits are delivered here : Gunman, Lots Of Sign, Original Foreign Mind, Herb Man Hustling to name but just a few. Tunes by deejays like Yellowman, Brigadier Jerry, John Wayne, Buju Banton, Red Dragon, Shabba Ranks and Admiral Bailey add enough power and spice to make this an interesting mega-mix. |
Producers on board include Henry Junjo Lawes, King Jammy, Winston Riley, Sly and Robbie, Linval Thomson and Jack Scorpio. This continuous mega-mix was mixed by Sherman Escoffery & Mikey Assassin who leave enough space for the vocals, so the listener can enjoy his journey through reggae's history.
