Can't Satisfy Her (I Wayne); Love Of My Life (Gregory Isaacs & Dennis Brown); Love Me (Sam Cooke); Whats Up (De De Hamilton); In The Ghetto (Elvis Presley) // Doctors Orders (Berris Hammond); Murderer (Capleton); Its Not Right (Whitney Houston); Ready Or Not (The Refugees); I'm Lost (Sam Cooke); unititled (uncredited)

Hmm... an intriguing album of rather dubious origin - being a compilation of 11 classic Studio One rhythm tracks overdubbed with pre-recorded vocals from an illustrious cast of both the living and the dearly departed. I must admit that I was sceptical at first, but this set is beginning to grow on me. The two Sam Cooke tracks sound magnificent, of course, and I could happily listen to more Gregory Isaacs vocals over Studio One rhythms. Pity that Elvis doesn't quite cut the mustard...
