Heartbeat Reggae Now!
This originally ran in the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 1993.
Since forming in the early 80's, Heartbeat Records has
been synonymous with quality reggae music, releasing
material ranging from classic re-issues to the latest sounds
from Jamaica. "Heartbeat Reggae Now!" is a superb sampler
from this company's prestigious catalog, with the emphasis
being on their most recent releases.
The music on this disc is exceptional, from the vintage
sounds of Culture, the Abyssinians, Third World and Michael
Rose, to current scorchers from such artists as Dennis
Brown, Burning Spear, Yami Bolo and the Meditations.
Some other killers feature newcomers Queen Majeeda and
General Two, as well as Andrew Tosh, Dawn Penn, Frankie
Paul, the Gladiators (with their 90's version of
"Naturality") and the team of Leroy Smart and Baby Wayne
doing their recent #1 hit, "Money Friend."
From roots to dancehall, these 18 tracks and over 70
minutes of music are wicked, making "Heartbeat Reggae Now!"
a highly recommended addition to any collection.
