ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Five Corners Music is proud to present the first "Best Of" collection from Marty Dread. This release focuses on the highlights of Marty Dread's ten year recording career and sets the stage for the future - ranging from early hits, such as his chart topping recording debut, "Wicked Wahine" and his calling card song, "Reggae Rock Maui Style (No Mo' Slippah )", to recent successes, such as "Another Day in Paradise" and "On the Beach".

Also included are six previously unreleased songs and rare remixed versions of Marty Dread hits such as "Pray For Them" with Pato Banton and "United We Stand" with The Pharaoh.

This compilation not only shows the artist's musical growth, but also showcases his versatility. Musical styles range from Ska ("Walking in Kingston"), Rocksteady ("Til I'm Over You"), Roots Reggae ("We Need to Learn"), R&B ("United We Stand"), Hawaiian ("Rain"), Samba ("Surfer Girl"), Dancehall ("On The Beach"), Dub Poetry ("Mouse in the House"), Lover's Rock ("Ready for Love"), and Ballads ("Partners for Life").

Influences from Marty Dread's worldwide tours can be heard throughout. Listen to the samba sound in "Surfer Girl", recorded in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with the legendary duo, Sly & Robbie. "Syonara" reflects the haunting melody of the Koto guitar of the Far East and was recorded with top musicians from the Island of Guam.

"Going Back to Tahiti" is a tasty morsel of Tahitian culture featuring Polynesian superstars O-Shen and Fiji, with rhythm by the legendary "Firehouse Crew" of Jamaica.

"Rain" exhibits the artist's exposure to Hawaiian music and culture as Leiohu Ryder chants in the language of her ancestors and Marty Dread sings in English.

The only live track, "Paradise," was recorded in 1997 at the House of Blues in Hollywood, California when Marty Dread opened for Bob Marley's band, The Wailers.

Fantastic Original Jahwaiian music
This CD has all that you need to get a complete listing of the best of Jahwaiian music (Reggae from Hawaii). Marty is Hawaii's Reggae Ambassador, and proves it with this cd. If you want to get up and dance, this is for it. A must have cd. Check this one out, you will be glad you did.

if you're looking for a waft of the islands in your reggae- the Hawaiian islands, that is- Marty Dread is the pick. Producing professional, clean, modern reggae that nods its head to Bob Marley while being true to his own voice, Marty's "Hits" from the last ten years makes for an exceptional album of danceable, enlivening reggae.
