    Boothe, Ken – “Let’s Get It On” – [Trojan Records]

    Welcome to the world where Let’s get it on is Let’s get it on.
    A time before some of us were born, along with their
    antiquated concerns, those that in a way are hard to take
    seriously, or innocently, such as the tune Playground of
    my mind. Contemporary to early Bob Marley, and where
    Jimmy Cliff and Ken Boothe are not that far off from each
    other. There is the lovers lament song, here it’s come back
    baby, featuring piano, but not as good as the nice few notes
    you can hear on African lady, which howls like Otis Redding,
    and follows bass first such as when the bass shifts the tune
    over to a section of anticipation of the reintroduction of the
    chorus. The bass lines carry the classic soul arrangements,
    but it is the two guitars that give it that good reggae chik a
    chik a. Leaving me has it’s primary and backup singers. That’s
    the way nature planned it is oldies style reggae, a nice
    Impressions feel good carry on, with it’s sliding rhythm,
    side to side dancing, or rocking side to side, and in both parts
    is the best on this album. Not to say Boothe can only carry
    the soul forward, some of these have a genuine Congos
    deepness to them. Anterior to the precursor of Is it because I’m
    black is one of these, and is still the teary tune it is known
    for. On Whole world’s down on me, i can almost imagine
    Cocoa Tea on this one. And is that Santana on down by the
    river? All in all this makes for an easy “into”, even dum dum
    works. Play dum dum.
