#6: Ini Kamoze - Ini Kamoze (1983)

I'm not a real big fan of Ini Kamoze's work after this, but this album he cut with Sly & Robbie is sick. Honestly, just about anyone could have laid some vocals over these rhythms and the record would still be hot, but the youthful Kamoze lays down the perfect vocal for this session and vaults the album into one of the greatest ever recorded. Only 6 songs with lots of jamming and the familiar, heavy Sly & Robbie bass and drum.The greatest of the latest that reggae had to offer before digital dancehall ruined the party...for me at least.

Get it over at Global Groove.
