Fantastic stuff – and a record that's as much an early 70s reggae set as it is a strong bit of east coast soul – Kingston rhythms mixed with fantastic harmonies that maybe echo more of the East Coast group soul modes than some of the earlier Jamaican groups of the 60s! The choice of material also echoes that quality too – as The Chosen Few take on older soul classics, remade for a reggae market – mixed with a few original tracks of their own. Titles include "My Thing", "Reggae Stuff", "I Second That Emotion", "Make Way For The Young Folks", "La La At The End", and "Tears Of A Clown". (Reggae, Soul)LP, Vinyl record album
(Individually numbered limited edition of 1000 – on heavyweight orange vinyl!)
Bad-stepping sounds from The Uniques – a really hip Jamaican vocal group, and one who sing with an edge that's maybe even sharper than some of their contemporaries! At first listen, the warmth of their harmonies is as sweet as you might expect – but as the music moves on, they open up all these unusual deeper, darker currents that really shape the sound in a great way – vocal interplay that's different than American soul groups, but which has that similarly revolutionary sense of changes taking place on the east coast indie scene. Rhythms are mostly in a stepping rocksteady mode – moving slow enough to allow for lots of vocal dynamics – and titles include "A Yuh", "Watch This Sound", "Run Come", "Speak No Evil", "Freedom Song", "My Conversation", and "Standing In".
