Hotter Reggae

Darker Than Blue: Soul from Jamdown (1973-1980) features 18 scorching tracks of Jamaican reggae bands covering American soul, funk, and rap. One listen to Ken Boothe's cover of Bill Withers' Ain't No Sunshine, and you're hooked; one listen to Welton Irie's Hotter Reggae Music, in which Rapper's Delight pops up from out of nowhere, and you're buying.
