This originally was my 2nd review for the St. Louis Post Dispatch (in 1992).
Frankie Paul has been a superstar in his native Jamaica
since the mid-1980's, and for good reason. Simply put, he
continues to release hit after hit record. His latest
offering is no exception.
Produced by the legendary Niney the Observer, "Should
I" is clean, slick, and smooth. Full of infectious rhythms,
this disc showcases Frankie's distinctive voice and soulful
delivery. This is reggae music for American ears. In fact,
the majority of these songs are strong enough for radio
That's the key. "Should I," in the right hands, could
become a big seller. But without more radio exposure, it
will never happen. That's a shame, because Frankie Paul's
track record is such that he should be a major star in
America. Hopefully, one day he will be.
As for "Should I," the answer is yes.
