Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

To tie in with Channel 4's 2000 cricket season (England versus the West Indies), and in an attempt to make the sport funky, here is the soundtrack to the summertime--forget the sound of leather on willow, now the sound of cricket is Jamaican steel drums and reggae beats. This is a great compilation of classic summer tracks--Toots' "Broadway Jungle" (which was also used as the soundtrack to the Adidas campaign during Euro 2000) and Al Brown's "Here I Am Baby" nestle happily alongside tracks from reggae superstars such as Desmond Dekker, Prince Buster and Bob Marley. There are also a few more up tempo disco tracks such as the Gibson Brothers' "Cuba" and Third World's "Now That We Found Love" and contemporary summer stylings from the likes of Chaka Demus & Pliers and Pato Banton. All in all, it's the perfect soundtrack to a sunny day--let's just hope that rain doesn't stop play.--Helen Marquis

What can i say! A pure masterpiece, I cannot tell you the amount of times that I have listened to this album! Some great Marley records, past and present tie in with some reggae classics. "Tease me" - Chakademus and Pliers is one of my favourites, and will make you recall the summer when it was released (1996?) and if you have never been to the Caribbean, just sit back and chill to the whole of this album and imagine the sun! Just buy it now!

The first time that I heard this compilation, I knew it was great music to my ears - it is well stocked with all my childhood favourites. I thought it was fantastic!! A brilliant selection of artists, both old and new, is ideal to suit all generations. The up beat and chill out tracks, is excellent for all year round entertainment and parties. A must for those who enjoy the flavour of true Caribbean harmony with the added spice of soul.

Brilliant! Just what I wanted for a Caribbean themed party background score and received day later spot on. Inflatable palms and tiki torches going up and hey presto!
