New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Alex Rozay PR)
The first volume of the 2014 revamp of the classic "Sea of Love Riddim" (originally produced by Sir Coxsone Dodd for his Studio One label), offers an abundance of great music! Uplifting and positive
messages will resonate with each and every reggae and dancehall fan!
The "Sea of Love Riddim, Vol. 1" (Skinny Bwoy/Skinny Bwoy Canada), compilation starts off with "Kiss Me One More Time" from the wonderful songbird Twiggi (best known for her work with Penthouse Records in the mid-90's). It then takes a turn upwards with "Party Tun Up" from Sadiki and Third World reggae band lead singer AJ Brown. The brilliant Pam Hall (who has released several albums through VP Records), hits the perfect notes with the inspirational "Freedom Song". Canada's Tony Anthony takes over with "Friend Zone".
We are then introduced to the splendid voice of Michelle Buckley (the sister of singer/songwriter/producer Sadiki), making her recording debut with the Reggae Gospel offering "Prisoners". British songstress Helen Rogers (best known for her work with Jazzmasters
& Paul Hardcastle), gives us "Woman Overboard" in keeping with the theme of the compilation. Sadiki is up next (recording under the name Henry Buckley Jr. on this track), he belts out the classic "Sea of Love" with great conviction. Likkle Shanx of the group Roots
Revealers is up next with the sweet reggae ballad "Memories
". French trumpeter Poopa Tribuman gives us "Sea of Trumpets" - a jazzy-reggae, muted-trumpet rendition of "Sea of Love". Album Producer Sadiki then closes out the segment with the "Sea of Love Riddim".
