NEW YORK (www.highgradereggae.com/ www.sharenewyork.com) - TCOOO is proud to present the release of the long awaited classic reggae compilation 18 Karat Reggae Gold. The album contains 18 classic reggae tracks ranging from conscious roots reggae to hype dancehall tunes and easy smooth listening love songs. The album is now available at Tower Records, Amazon, CD Baby, Bath Tub Music
and numerous retail record shops.
The album starts off with a hot party track entitled 'Are you ready to party'' Stapler is the lead singer and this track and is backed up by Attorney who laces the track with some real 'grab a partner and dance' lyrics. The Jamaican Star refers to Stapler as a cross between Sanchez and Tenor Saw. You can also find this golden voice singer on other tracks on the album. He goes solo on 'Wife type', which is a tribute to every woman who has all the qualities to be the wife of any great man. He then teams up with Attorney again on the heated break up track 'F You'. This track catches the singer belting out notes such as:
'Since we've been together girl, I've never done you wrong / I don't think you have a heart, you dirty Vagabond / So F you and your friends and everything you do / I've reached the point of no return / I want nothing to do with you.
The album also features two blazing tracks from Vineyard. Chanting over beautiful acoustics, the Rasta man chant against oppression and imperialism in 'stolen Legacy'. Stolen Legacy is a must have, the lyrics are very deep yet uplifting and gives an eerie reminiscent of Bob Marley's 'Old Pirates'.
Next there is Afayah who also have a beautiful break up song called 'I still love her'. Unlike Stapler in 'F You', Afayah can't seem to get over this special someone who has broken his heart. So in a kind of Keith Sweat's style he sings to her ''roses under your pillow, that's what you're missing'
'Just when reggae was getting tired of the same old Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Shaggy and Sean Paul then here comes a breath of fresh air in 18 Karat Reggae Gold. There is not one song on the entire album that I did not want to listen to ever and over again. It is packed with great reggae beats, excellent flows and deep conscious, yet sometimes funny lyrics. With this album you can dance, laugh, vent, all while having an enjoyable time.' Geoffrey Garland - ENTERTAINMENT TIMES
