This is a fantastic reggae album from the glory days of reggae. The album features the music of the revolutionaries who were the best band in reggae ever. The songs are all originals and are performed well by althea and donna.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL TIME CLASSIC 22 July 2002
By ReggaeOne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
UpTown Top Ranking is a classic song by Althea & Donna which was a BIG hit in 1977. Althea Forrest and Donna Reid were 17 and 18 respectively when the song was bubbling on the charts. This cd is full of the style from the Golden Age of reggae. Althea & Donna helped blaze the trail for other female artists. Produced and engineered with Karl Pitterson at the controls. Musicians like Sly & Robbie, Earl "Chinna" Smith, Bernard "Touter" Harvey, Scully, Tommy McCook, Vin Gordon and Herman Marquis provide the crucial instrumental journey. Even though I already had the classic song (it's included on various complilations) this cd is an essential addition to my collection. This release is an All Time Classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uptown Top Rating! 15 Nov 2001
By "rootsfan" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Killer roots from the late 70's backed by Sly and Robbie and a great horn section. All the tunes are rootsy, slow and conscious, and of course includes the hit title track which you may have heard before on various rootes reggae comps. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Gimme likkle bass, make me wine up me waist" 2 Aug 2004
By Derek Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Uptown Top Ranking.

Best.Reggae.Song.Ever.

This is a great roots album, sounding like much of the roots music from the mid to late 70's. Sly & Robbie riddim section aboard and heavenly harmonies from Althea & Donna. A classic that needs to be in any reggae lover's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars dannyfromny2003@yahoo.com 29 Nov 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Uptown Top Ranking is the Best and Top Ranking reggae song in History period . It is still on the charts in the Caribbean , U.S.A and Europe - still bubbling - still fresh - still roots - still hot - original and still rude gyul style . the new 2000-2002 video that goes with the song is the best video I have seen with the sexiest dancing - moving that waist and shaking those hips [a strong wine]- most attractive dreadlocks roots lady I have seen .

5.0 out of 5 stars Roots music 17 April 2002
By roarscach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's true...the role of woman in reggae has never achieved much more importance...reggae voices have to be male voices.....but, as everything in life...there are some exceptions...And this is one of them: althea and donna's unique album shows perfectly how to sing reggae, being backed by top ranking musicians. Enough good to buy it, or to download it.....it's worthy!!
