jamrock_classicsVOL1.jpgGargamel Music productions Jamrock Classics Vol 1 is truly one to be added to the musical collection. The CD comes with some real 'classics' in its collection. The first release in Gargamel's music new compilation series the compilation CD is a fresh mix of tunes from a diverse assortment of Jamaican talents.

The 10-track album kicks off with Buju Banton's 'Cowboys' which really hit out at the violence in the society. Buju appeals to the gangstas to put down the guns and act like conscious thinking human beings.

George Nooks is up next with Police and Thieves a Junior Murvin original and he puts his own spin on it making it one for enjoyable listening.

It's nostalgia at its best listening to the smooth voice of Pinchers in track number 3 Punk Me Out. This is a warning to all those who refuse to listening to warning. There is only one way they can end up!

Yami Bolo makes his musical contribution on Jamrock Classics with End of Day a retrospective look on life "at the end of the day only Jah love can save the day and at the end of the day only Jah love will lead the way." Listening to Yami on this one it's very easy to be lulled away with the sentiments expressed in the song.

Other tracks in the album are Lonely Night – Ghost, January Morning – Jah Cure, Goodbye to Love – Tony Curtis, Means to Survive – Lutan Fyah, and Curfew, a combination with Buju Banton featuring an upcoming artiste New Kids. Terror Fabulous' contribution is 'Ready Rock'.

Executively produced by Mark Myrie aka Buju Banton, recording was done at Gargamel studio in Kingston.
