Label: Tafari Records
The dancehall legend (also known as "Mellow Canary") turns in an acoustic set of old favorites and a few new tunes, stripped down to vocals and acoustic guitars, plus gentle hand percussion reminiscent of 1970s Nyabinghi. Barrington hasn't completely gone unplugged, however -- there's still some modulated echo and even a little Auto-Tune ("Times Hard"). Big 1985 hit "Here I Come" is accounted for, as is herb tribute "Unda Mi Sensi" and classic lament "Prison Oval Rock," reinterpreted here as the loveliest of ballads. It's like having your own private busking session with a Jamaican great.
