Bost & Bim of Special Delivery Music, founded in 2001 by Jay Pee Greve & Pierre Bost, made their mark on the scene with their 'Clean Vibes' which was also released as a one riddim album last year, then July last year released the big Buju Banton & Queen Omega combination "Perfect Combination" over the Heptones' "We Are In The Mood" a.k.a. 'Rock With Me' and also did they release 7 very fine 7" singles (featuring 10 tunes and the version) on the excellent live played rootical backdrop 'Storm Alarm', which was then compiled with 11 more tunes over it on "Storm Alarm". In the meanwhile they released an excellent set of tunes on 7" over their remake of the Itals' "Inna Dis Ya Time", 'Dis Ya Time', that was relicked in the early 80s for Yellowman's "Operation Radication" and now this nice organ melody and saxophone enhanced expertly mixed version (by Barry O'Hare - regular mixing engineer for Burning Spear as well as producer and owner of the "X-Rated" and "World-A-Muzik" record labels -) is released as a one riddim album as well. Although the first 9 tunes of this album were all featured in the review linked above, I feel I must emphasize the absolute brilliance of these tunes, especially (for me) Natty King's "For My People", the Jahmali & Turbulence combination "Stay Strong", Lukie D's "The One You Love" and the 3-the-hard-way combination of Lyricson, Natty King & Singing Melody on their "Government Live Fe War". The high level of the 7" releases is maintained on the other cuts, with Chezidek's "Rastafari Knows" and Oba Simba's "Hanky Panky" and Ryan, who already impressed over 'Storm Alarm', again delivering a great tune with "Rastafari's Name". Levi Myaz delivers the solid lovers tune "What Would You Do" before we are treated to the clean version of this high quality remake by Bost & Bim of the "Dis Ya Time Riddim". If you didn't buy the 7"s be sure to grab this album.
