 If you like classic soul music. Phyllis Dillon being addressed as the "Queen of Jamaican R&B" is very easily justified within the tracks on this CD. Every single one of them is a stand out- Jamaican influence is there, but with even a greater soul influence. When I first heard it, I went and dusted off some old Northern Soul albums afterward. The arrangments are great, the set of pipes on Phyllis are amazing...and I doubt this CD will ever leave my player.

Stand outs are "Make Me Yours" (this is better then Bettye Swann's version), "Nice Time" (which made the Trojan Rocksteady box set) and "Don't Touch me Tomato"...but her covers of classics like "Midnight Confession" and "Love the One Your With" are also outstanding. I can't say enough about this one- If you like Northern Soul or old Motown...and you like the sounds of the island, this is going to knock you out. Just buy the darn thing already...oh yeah, and skip "Eddie O Baby"- really the only turd in the whole thing.
