Rita Marley? Of course I know her as the wife of and as back ground singer in his band. What I was not aware of was that she released records under her own name, let alone she can claim a stake to a 'best of' album. Here it is and I've listened to it.
For those who noticed any reggae on these pages before must have been paying really, really good attention. It must have been extremely incidental.
Reggae is not my natural musical habitat. I have grown into some of the bigger hits over the years. They are more or less the same for everyone of my generation. Songs I sing along to like every one else when they come by on the radio.
The first surprise listening to this album is that I know the song 'One Draw'. Was this a hit in NL? It may well have been in 1982 I find. The familiarity remains there. The rest is new. Like reggae music is supposed, to the music slowly progresses certainly making me want to move in a slow but decidedly content way.
