From the Joe Fraser production camp and producers Lloyd & Michelle Campbell, Dean Fraser and Jason Sterling comes the one riddim album "Iíll Be Lonely" built upon the late seventies classic of the same name by John Holt. This loverís rock classic, itself based upon Winston Francis' Studio One hit 'Mr. Fix It' is given a brandnew interpretation by top reggae voices. Here you will find sweet and mellow interpretations by the likes of George Nooks, Sanchez, Freddie McGregor, Wayne Wade, Nadine Sutherland and others. As expected the groove is smooth and the mood decidedly mellow. It's a lovers rock album loaded with tracks trying to capture a mood, and aimed at the more "mature" listener to brighten up his romantic moments. The occasional roots tracks here, Zion by Mikey General, Freddie McGregor's A Prayer and George Nook's Don't Give Up are some of the standout tracks of the album.
Strictly for romantic moments!
