Patrick Murray, better known as Pato Banton, first appeared with The Beat in 1984 but had to wait ten years before making his own breakthrough, topping the charts with a cover of The Equals' 'Baby Come Back'. Whilst his chart career didn't hit such heights again, he could claim to be at the forefront of the revival in fortunes for reggae music, assisted along the way by the likes of Ranking Roger (formerly of The Beat), Ali and Robin Campbell of UB40 and Sting. It was Pato's live performances that earned him most of his accolades, a vibrant stage act that bristled with excitement and audience participation, as this album demonstrates. As well as his massive hit 'Baby Come Back', the album contains versions of 'Groovin'' and 'Bubbling Hot', which were also hits for Pato, and 'Jamming', an homage to Bob Marley.
