From producer Mikey Campbell comes the compilation cd "Motown Reggae", which happens to be a collection of 17 of the best classic songs from the Tamla Motown label, re-recorded by some of Jamaica's best artists, giving it a sweet reggae flavor. With artists like The Temptations, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Smoke Robinson and The Isley Brothers, the Tamla Motown label ruled the charts from the late sixties to the early seventies. Most Jamaican artists were eager the cover the hittunes produced by the label. The recent release of cd's covering vintage do-overs of soul classics gives one a perfect impression of the popularity of those tunes.|
Mikey Campbell has selected some of the label's greatest tunes and with the help of renown artists like Ken Boothe, The Mighty Diamonds, Tony Tuff, Ernest Wilson, Ruddy Thomas and Tinga Stewart he has recorded some 17 sweet tunes, featuring standout tracks by The Mighty Diamonds with Still Waters Run Deep, Tony Tuff with Too Busy Thinking About My Baby, Ernest Wilson with This Old Heart Of Mine and the Ruddy Thomas cut Second That Emotion.
