New Release-Round Up... hear it first on Ackee & Saltish!
Lots of new releases coming in, this time we feature:
* Various Artist - Strictly The Best Vol. 32
VP's well-known "Best of"-compilation... if you missed some of the hottest tunes of 2004, you'll find it all here - be it Roots, be it Dancehall. This time we focus on the Roots.
* Richie Stephens - Standing Ovations
What to say? Quite a good singer, quite a good album - includes a wicked tribute to the crown-prince of Reggae, Dennis Brown. It's just... that very special something is missing here... maybe Mr. Stephens is trying too hard to please just about everybody with this album?
* Buju Banton - Buju And Friends
Good compilation (2 CDs) of Buju Banton's duets with literally every important Reggae-artist. Although a mixed Roots/Dancehall-set, we focus on the Roots here too.
* Horace Andy - From The Roots
New album, produced by the Mad Professor, backed mostly by Sly & Robbie. And we're talking live-band backing here!
* Various Artists - Is It Rolling, Bob?
Stunning new album of Bob Dylan-covers, produced by RAS-Record's Dr. Dread. Simply beautiful, a classic. Features Luciano, Michael Rose, The Mighty Diamonds, Don Carlos, Bob Dylan himself and many, many more. Make sure to get this one NOW - the first edition comes with a bonus Dub-CD!
