Album Notes

"Occasional small bits of good news are necessary for a balanced lifestyle. One such tidbit that gladdened my heart recently was a brief note on Mt. Nebo’s web site, to the effect that there will soon be a second various artists compilation, "Talkin’ Roots II."

It starts off with one of the strongest vocals, by the singly-named “Iba,” who urges us over a complex but never overpowering arrangement to “Chant a psalm a day, read a proverb a day, and you won’t go astray;" he comes back later with a second potent, sensitive delivery of thoughtful lyrics on “Tell Me Why." The deep heartbeat rhythm of “Works of the Wise” anchors an impulsive, gruff, dancehall-flavoured verbal tongue-twister by Yah Shiloh I. The distinctive sound of Dezarie

Various artists St.Croix sound - well worth checking out!!!
Good representative selection of St.Croix artists, with a nice mix of styles. Some tracks admittedly stronger than others, but this compil is definitely worth a listen...
