"More Reggae" contains 16 tracks drawn from producer Bunny Gemini's vaults. His approach is similar to that of for example Bobby "Digital" Dixon : take some vintage riddims and let some well voiced vocalists perform their tune.|
Most tunes found here are in the lovers rock vein, performed by well known vocalists like Sanchez, the late great Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs and Frankie Paul. These names need no further introduction as they have been very successful throughout the years. On the other hand the album features some lesser known artists such as Steve Machette, Conrad Crystal and Andrew Wright, but they also put out some decent tunes.
Noteworthy tracks are Hopeton James' Big Girl Now, a tune across Studio One's classic "Love Me Forever" riddim, Horace "Sleepy" Andy's I May Never and Lukie D with Close Your Eyes, which utilizes the Melodians' classic "Come On Little Girl" riddim.
"More Reggae" is a licked compilation album from producer Bunny Gemini.
