Review quote

This new anthology of Jamaican songs offers a piece for every occasion, from dance and humorous songs through to Rastafarian songs, Christmas songs and popular songs - all with infectious, lilting beats that are guaranteed to spice up any choir rehearsal . . . this is an excellent guide to incorporating Jamaican music and culture into music lessons - the only trouble is, you may never get 'Let's Get Together and Feel Alright' out of your head ever again. * Lucy de Butts, Muso, December 09 *show more
