Jamaica 50Th Then & Now / Various Artists (2Cd Set)
The set contains songs produced or licensed by Tads founder Tad Dawkins since the mid-1970s including Dennis Brown’s Love and Hate (Here I Come), Buddy Bye by Johnny Osbourne and My Native Land which is done by Larry and the Mento Boys. Many of the songs have a nationalistic theme and covers different genres of Jamaican culture, such as ska, rock steady, reggae, gospel and mento. An interesting inclusion is a 23-song medley by the Blues Busters, the Rhythm and Blues-influenced duo which had their heyday during the 1960s. The medley, which includes standards like Sammy Dead, Israelites, Guava Jelly and Soon You’ll Be Gone, was produced and recorded by Dawkins in 1980 at Harry J studio in Kingston. Most of the songs, however, are dancehall/reggae hits from the early 1980s to the present. Heading the list is Dawkins’ version of Here I Come which became a staple at Brown’s live shows. Other familiar songs include Dawkins’ production of Sugar Minott’s Mr DC, Junior Byles’ Fade Away (done by Patrick Badoo) and People’s Choice, a hit for Ray Darwin four years ago.
