Sly & Robbie Sly & Robbie Present Taxi Gang in Discomix Style 1978-1987 

Sly & Robbie
Present Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1978-1987 CREE. CD/DL/LP Sublime Sly & Robbie pop reggae and lovers rock mixes. This selection taken from Sly & Robbie's Kingston-based Taxi label is top notch from start to finish with the Rhythm Twins driving disco and soul covers by Delroy Wilson, Marcia Grif-fiths et al. The latter's take on Fever is slinky and jazz-tinged, although Griffiths is more soul singer than torch singer. The former, meanwhile, turns Marvin Gaye's Inner City Blues into compelling rebel funk. Recorded in 1982 at Channel One, it loses none of the origi-nal's emotional power in its makeover. Gaye is recut else-where, by Jimmy Riley, with Sexual Healing providing the perfect vehicle for his heav-enly croon. Home T-4 and Barry Biggs are also captured in fine voice on lovers rock readings of The Detroit Spin-ners' Could It Be I'm Falling In Love and The Delfonics' Break Your Promise respectively. Lois Wilson
