The compilation set "Run The Riddim Selector Vol. 3" is the follow up to "Run De Riddim Selector Vol. 2". Jet Star's Danny Ray produced this excellent three-riddim album in 2001, and it brings you some really exciting cuts across three fine riddims. Two out three riddims are based upon Bob Marley tunes. First there's the Kinky riddim. The Ras Ites previewed the riddim behind their own 'Crazy Lazy', but it was Ambelique who brought the riddim to fame with his huge hit Backstabbers, following hot on his heels were Thriller U's Love Is In The Air, Alpha Rowen with Burning Flame and Peter Hunnigale with Can't Stop. Bob's tune 'I'm Still Waiting' is given the Danny Ray treatment and renamed Still Water riddim. Led by Luciano with Empress Love, the riddim is as fine a showcase for silky vocal styles such as Don Campbell's straight forward interpretation I'm Stil Waiting and matching cuts by Glen washington and Ambelique.|
The 'Messenjah' Luciano did a song called Bandits for his Jet star album "Great Controversy", and the riddim proved very popular. Here you'll find a remixed version of his tune Bandits. The album features some unreleased versions namely Never Can Stop by Glen Washington, Lorenzo with Jah Is Watching, John McLean's It's Time and a compelling piece entitled Let Jah Be Praised by Michael Prophet.
A beautiful three riddim album !
