After Twentythree years of giging around the Virgin Islands, This Group of fine gentlemen has finally done it. Living in a Soca and Calypso infested environment was hard for a band trying to find it's way performing Reggae Music but this album broke the curse. They produced this album that give them a hit that stayed at the #1 position for six weeks on four radio stations. If their count down was not discontinued because of Christmas, The song "Shala-la" would have probably lasted even more weeks! In the following year the song was voted #10 as the tenth most requested song of the year in a countdown of 100 hits. Many other songs from this cd also was found working steady on radio too.
Today you'll find Inner Visions sharing the stage with the likes of "Burning Spear, "Jimmy Cliff", "Morgan Heritage", "Beres Hammond","Marcia Griffiths","yellow Man","Isarael Vibrations" and "Culture" and many more just to name a few. They have become one of the most prolific up and coming bands this past year 2004!
