5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reissue of an odd Black Ark gem April 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is some of the best production work Lee Perry ever did, but at the same time this is basically pop reggae, which is not a bad thing at all. It's fun. I mean, I like Jah Rastafari as much as the next guy, but it's interesting to hear Scratch do something a little differrent and still keep that same heavy sound. It's still the Black Ark at it's peak--the backup singers and players of instruments are the same ones who appeared on tunes with names like Dread Lion, Ethiopian Land and Babylon Falling.

The material does vary a bit. Some of the songs are unquestionably great: In the Ghetto (yes, the song Elvis made famous--you know you want to hear a Lee Perry production of an Elvis tune), Nice and Easy (very sexy), the title track, If You Love Me (although perhaps a bit too Motownish for some, but fantastic guitar solo in the middle), Feeling is Right (also very sexy), and Fever (yes the tune Peggy Lee made famous, in an incredibly rootsy version, and yes, is sexy). But most of the other songs are pretty mediocre, kinda like reggae versions of generic 70s Nashville songs. Although they've all still got that thundering Black Ark groove. At times it's a strange combination. Congratulations starts out very dubby, with a deep bass and a haunting echo-drenched flute in the background, and then in the middle of the song there's Here Comes the Bride played on a cheesy keyboard.

The bonus tracks almost double the amount of material here and show the brilliant way Scratch was able to rework the same material, remixing and laying new tunes over existing rhythms. There's the English single mix of Hurt So Good), a "version" of the same song (Loving Is Good) and a dub (Rub a Dub). Dub It is a dub of Nice and Easy, the second track on the CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a voice!!! July 29, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD to get the track "Hurt So Good" and I was pleased that there were a couple of versions of it included, one being an instrumental backing (for you karaoke nuts out there). There are about a dozen tracks by Cadogan and some bonus tracks from other artists too. I like this style of music, so for me it's a fun CD. I especially like her take on "In the Ghetto". This album has some serious bass on it. It makes my sub-woofer happy every time I put it on. A few tracks sound like they were recorded inside of a tin can, and they probably were, but I think for the most part it adds to the character and uniqueness to the sound. Recommended for her fans and fans of skinhead reggae.
