No Stoppin' This Music
The compilation you hold in your hands features the best of U Browns 1983 release Jam It Tonight, cut at Channel One with the Roots Radics, coupled with enthralling earlier singles laid at Channel with the Revolutionaries. The high points are many in this thoroughly agreeable set that showcases the best of peak-period U Brown; beginning with the devotional Jah Is My Father Still and Walk With Jah Love from Jam It Tonight, the title track speaks of reggae musics unstoppable nature and Reggae Gone International is a celebratory take of the Pick A Dub rhythm, here totally reconfigured, Maxfield Avenue style. Rub A Dub All The Time (aka Tu Sheng Peng) is a killer take of the Dennis Brown song of the same name, while Blow Mr Hornsman Blow is an awesome re-working of the Take Five rhythm, and Come Along a beautiful deejay counterpart to Sugar Minotts Steal Away Girl. U Brown has since gone on to enjoy all kinds of musical adventures in the UK, USA, and Europe, where he settled in the 1990s; listen to the artistry on No Stoppin This Music and marvel at his enduring talents.
