Artist: Richie Spice Track: "Di Plane Land" Album: Gideon Boot Listen
His more intense dancehall on previous albums sold me on Richie Spice, but I've taken to the softer roots reggae from the Jamaican's Gideon Boot, due out May 13. If you like albums like Survival by Bob Marley & the Wailers or Marcus Garvey by Burning Spear, dig this. He even gives a nice rasta update to John Denver. Balmy backing vocals and organ make this a standout from what looks to another great release from a successful contemporary reggae artist.
