The latest volume in Jet Star's "Big People Music' series is a compilation of reggae versions of songs that have become standards throughout the years. It's a special selection that mainly aims at the more 'mature' listener who wants to listen to sweet and soulful songs.
Here you'll find versions like Bill Wither's "Lean On Me", Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" (already expertly covered by Ghost), Sam Cooke's "Cupid" and a 14 minutes long Dobby Dobson medley, produced by the RuffCut production team. Morgan Heritage also delivers an excellent track -Down By The River which was produced by Dean Fraser.
If you're looking for sweet and soulful tunes for your romantic moments with your lover, seek no longer because 'Big People Music Volume 5' is especially for you.
