A Jackie Mittoo Tribute

To start your New Year’s right, it’s a live Jackie Mittoo tribute by Sly and Robbie, Ernest Ranglin and Tyrone Downie. This is how the masters of reggae do it – grovin’ mellow steady all the way.  Recorded live in the summer of 2012 at the Pori Jazz Festival in Finland. Kick back and enjoy!

Love and Devotion

Another breakup song but this time from Jimmy Riley with Sly & Robbie backing a simple, infectious rhythm, and there’s ultra-smooth background vocals too.  The dub version follows  – what’s not to love about that?
