From East Memphis to Kingston

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
American soul music's influence on reggae has never been a secret, so the idea behind From East Memphis to Kingston is a good one: choose classic soul tunes associated with Memphis especially the Stax/Volt and Hi labels for various reggae artists to cover. As with most albums of this nature, some tracks work better than others, especially Third World's version of "Respect Yourself," the always soulful Toots and the Maytals' take on Al Green's "Tired of Being Alone" and a dancehall remake of "I Betcha Didn't Know That" by Chaka Demus and Pliers.
