Pure Lovers Volume 12 brings together a high calibre of artists both legendary and those heading towards producing reggae classics. Freddie McGregor leads with the sensual Feeling Of Love, followed by Morgan Heritage's Smile drawn from their latest quality album "Don't Haffe Dread".|
Mikey Spice brings the irresistible lovers tune So Lonely. UK Reggae vet Don Campbell delivers a fine version of the 'Undying Love' riddim, entitled Wind Beneath My Wings. Mr. John Holt is present in smooth style here with In The Mood. Glen Washington is featured with the outstanding tracks, Breaking Up being a remake of Alton Ellis's Studio One smash hit, and Forever Lover which features Marcia Griffiths' 'Truly' riddim. The unforgettable Tyrone Taylor (remember his 'Cottage In Negril' ??) puts down Moments To Treasure. Newcomer Don Ricardo's hit single First To Know is produced by Ruff Cut.
The album closes with Pamela Maynard who brings you an interesting reworking of Cher's Believe.
This album collects some of the most seductive romantic tracks of this moment, perfect for people in love...so check it out !!
