This sixth instalment of Jet Starís Riddim Riders series was produced by the Fat Eyes team of Colin 'Bulby' York and Lynford 'Fatta' Marshall. This team is responsable for hit riddims such as Candle Wax, Renegade and Living Colours. For this release they have skilfully reworked a vintage Melodians tune called 'Last Train To Expo í67', which the group originally recorded during the golden age of rocksteady.
A star-studded line-up of Jamaican talent is led by 'The Royal Family Of Reggae', Morgan Heritage, for an impressive collection of songs across the compelling riddim. Luciano delivers one of his best outings as he does Lesson Of Life. The never dissapointing Admiral Tibbet brings you Call Me A Warrior, which is followed by Half Pint's (lovers) hit tune Blessing Darling. George Nooks performs the gospel flavored track Lord I. The combination Chaka Demus & Pliers are still active and here they try to bring back the good old times with Love Goes. Pam Hall knows how to put out a decent lovers tune, while Lukie D. - one of Jamaica's most talented singers - is present here with the impressive Walk Away. The Real Revolutionary, Anthony B. and LMS are responsable for two strong reality tunes whereas ragga pioneer Flourgon hits you with his tune Respect One Another. Further enjoyable efforts are from newcomers Don T., Leego and Ultimate Shines.
Get on the Train to Expo '67!
