This Is Lovers Reggae, Vol. 2 Review

by Ron Wynn

This second volume devoted to classic lover's rock reggae has two fewer tunes than its predecessor and includes repeat appearances from Sandra Cross, Kofi, Slim Linton, John McLean, and Robotiks, although this time Just Dale is their featured vocalist. Cross again sounds sublime, as does Kofi on a marvelous reworking of the Emotions' "Don't Ask My Neighbors." Tomorrow's People makes the original Royalettes version of "Gonna Take a Miracle" seem like a cynical, bitter effort by comparison, while Sister Audrey's "My Thing" matches any contemporary dancehall tune in its lyrical boldness and suggestiveness.
