Review: London's Jah Fingers present former Heptones singer Naggo Morris and producer Niney The Observer on this latest one. The A side houses the gentle roots and lovers rock combo of "Jah Guide": a steamy, earthy, humid cut that pairs great rim shots with the aloof vocal work of Morris. Flip over for a busier cut by The Observer. "Give Her My Love" features a lead line that rings out with naive charm, taut drum hits and prickly percussion that will keep your limbs moving. A two sided gem.
Review: A digging session in our own archives has unearthed this sun-kissed and rootsy 12" from Rod Taylor and Leroy Smart. Originally released on the King Culture label it has become something of a sought after number that drips with Jamaican cool.
Smart, who appeared in the Rockers film with peers Gregory Isaacs and Jacob Miller, offers up the glorious "More Than a Million"; a cuddly dub that barley manages to move with its laidback hits and drums so deep. The b-side is taken care of by Taylor - "Lonely Girl", a gentle dub lovesong that seduces with its leads and twanging riffs. Both sides come with the requisite dubs to complete the set. A sweet addition to any collection.
