Already the seventh release in the "Rewind Selecta" series from the English Grapevine label. A series dedicated to preserving reggae classics from the archives of various production houses both in Jamaica and the UK. This third "Lovers Rock" compilation contains twelve classic mastercuts, with care and knowledge selected by the renown deejay David Rodigan of Kiss 100 FM (London). He is also the writer of the superb sleeve notes with extended and relevant information on each track included. The album is another essential addition to the revival selection with a strong mix of English and Jamaican musical anthems and glorious obscurities. Marvellous stuff !
