Captain Sinbad – “Reggae Music Will Mad Unu!” – [Maximum Sound]
Heeeee’s back. After over 20 years of not recording, Frenchie, England’s reggae producer supreme, convinced Captain Sinbad to come out from behind the boards and work his dancehall magic for a new reggae recording. Remember “The Seven Voyages of Captain Sinbad”, that early ’80’s classic? Well, Captain Sinbad sounds like he just picked up where he left off. With a heavy hitter team of musicians (of course including Sly and Robbie), Sinbad sings of his life, honors the history of Jamaican reggae and gives reverence to THE favorite plant. His voice is solid, strong and commanding, grasping the listener on his first note and taking you through to the last heavy bass thump. Each song is followed by a bouncing dub version. The cover art will make you feel like it’s the summer of 1982 all over again.
