DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, December 2007 - Nineteen crucial tracks full of love and romance! Even Marvin Gaye is present, as he rides Bob Marley's "Waiting in Vain" in what is another fine selection by DJ Dr. Tahl.
Sweet Lovers Music is no rarity within Reggae Music. From X-rated Dancehall (often referred to as "slackness") to sweet romance and everything in between, there is a Reggae tune about it.
And when there is one, there are many!
Of course, there is Gregory "Cool Ruler" Isaacs, whose name is more or less synonymous with Lover's Rock. There is Lincoln "Sugar" Minott, whose sweet soulful voice will out-sing just about any so-called superstar. There is Echo Minott, too, who has the dubious honor to have first coined the phrase "slackness" in one of his releases.
Of course they are all present in the 11th episode of DJ Dr. Tahl's excellent podcast, alongside a whole host of known and lesser known artists. There is even a track by Marvin Gaye, riding the "Waiting in Vain" riddim.
