Jet Stars subsidiary label Charm has put together an album with all kinds of combination songs, from Dancahall to Lovers tunes.

Chaka Demus and Pliers open the album with the "Bam Bam" riddim as they perform there (in)famous Murder She Wrote, produced by Sly And Robbie. Beenie Man, ARP & Tony Curtis made a great remake of P. Diddy's Missing You followed by Bounty Killer & George Nooks dancehall tune Party Vibes on the "Juice" riddim. Beenie Man And Lady Saw - the dancehall king and dancehall queen - offer a fine combination called So Hot. From dancehall back to a lovers tune Woman A Mi Lover by Cutty Ranks and Sanchez. A sweet classic tune from the 70's over the "We Are In The Mood" riddim performed by Queen Omega & Buju Banton and definitely one of the perfect combinations of this album. We stick to the roots with Bounty Killer's World A Respect, an irie remix of Dawn Penn's "No No No" classic.

Back to the dancehall scene with a tune from the 90's Gal Wine on the "Sitting And Watching" riddim performed by Chaka Demus & Pliers, produced by Bobby "Digital" Dixon. Then there's Virtuous Woman on the "No Warrior/Father Jungle Rock" riddim by Ninja Man & Thriller U and a sweet remake of R. Kelly's "Snake" by Savana & Meta entitled Vanish Your Body. Yet another lovers song by Beres Hammond & Chaka Dog Nyam Yu Supper. All The Various Artist on You Turn Me On did a good job making it a pleasant song. Also Phillip 'Fattis' Burrell did a fine job producing Bumptious Girl on the "Sweet Talking" riddim sang by Sanchez and Stinga D (aka Stingerman).

The next dancehall tune on the album is Hot Ladies over the "Hi Fever" riddim with Buju Banton & George Nooks. Born In Famine another perfect combination drawn from Luciano's "Luciano / Duets" album, featuring Luciano, Sizzla and Jessie Gender. Steely and Clevie produced Anthony Malvo & Daddy Lizard's next song Take You to The Dance combined with the "Wear You To The Ball" riddim. The next perfect combination is Freddie McGregor & Macka B on a shining roots song, followed by Frankie Paul and Bounty Killer on a heavy bass dancehall song, The Real Score. The unique voice of Merciless and the sweet voice of Sarah Jane make a great combination on the Harry Joseph song. The album closes with a roots song, Far Away From Babylon with Macka B & Queen Omega.

A great compilation of combinations.
