Tings + Time (VP Records)
Reviewed by Shaun
Winston Riley wrote the "Tings & Time" riddim over a decade ago, and it's been the vehicle for some of the best dancehall music ever since. One top artist after another has adopted the riddim's groove to produce a string of singles that have rocked the world from the Carribean to California and everywhere else they've been heard.
Tings + Time collects 18 of those tracks, ranging from classic cuts to brand new interpretations of a classic sound. A quick scan of the artists listed below should be more than enough to convince you that this is not only a sound you love to hear, but a collection you need to own.
