the first Young, Gifted & Black is brimming with enjoyable catchy reggae that i'm sure any little sister would love, "a message to you rudy", "madness", "my boy lollipop", "red red wine", "love of the common people", "uptown top ranking" etc.
sweet studio one:
denise darlington - feel so good
marcia griffiths - feel like jumping
alton ellis - can i change my mind
heptones - pretty looks
carlton & the shoes - love me forever
johnny osbourne - sing jah stylee
the cables - baby why
jackie mittoo - freak out
and "ba ba boom", horaca andy's "lonely woman", "don't stay away", "happy go lucky girl", "carry go bring come", "take it easy", k.c. white's "no, no, no", "reggae got soul/pressure drop/broadway jungle/funky kingston" - these are the tunes the girls at my work love
sometimes i try to sneak in deeper material when i make these compilations for others, like burning spear, israel vibration, jazzy skatalites cuts, yabba you, dub specialist, king tubby and what have you, never works, they want the dancy stuff and you can't blame them!
