Ultimate Holt Review

by Steve Leggett

Jamaican singer John Holt's greatest success has come with smooth, orchestrated covers of American love songs, and they really do him a disservice, tending to obscure his stellar roots recordings and fine songwriting. This collection is hardly "the ultimate", despite its title, and of the many cover versions here, only "Rainy Night In Georgia" reflects any light on the original.
