Overview

This is one of two exceptional albums Marcia Griffiths recorded in the late 1970s for producer Sonia Pottinger's High Note label. Her singing voice (known to many now from the years she spent as part of Bob Marley's backing trio, the I-Threes) is a thing of wonder, almost classical in its nuanced sweetness and perfect control. Opening with "Dreamland," a Bunny Wailer composition and one of the undisputed classics of mystical roots reggae, Griffiths takes the listener on a guided nostalgia tour of her time at Studio One in the early days of reggae. Old hits like "Melody Life" and the Bob Andy compositions "Truly" and "Tell Me Now" are given new performances in what was then the more current "rockers" style, courtesy of the Revolutionaries. With Steppin', this album is an essential piece of reggae history.

This is an exhilirating and breathtaking collection of classical reggae. Every song is absolutely beautiful and pleasant to the aesthetics. This is by far Marcia's best album and the best reggae compositions of all time. Although these songs were written decades ago, my children who are in their early teen years and particular about their music, appreciate the songs as much as I do. These songs bridge the traditional generation gap that exists in music, thus the album "Naturally" is truly timeless. I strongly recommend it, I promise that you will enjoy this cd.
