Reggae Vault Classics Mix from Da Music Vault with Kahlil Wonda (10-2-13 )

It is
imperative to preserve the foundation of our treasured music and so its time
for our Reggae Vault Classics mix to revive the positive vibrations that reggae
lovers all over the world crave so much. 

This Reggae Vault Classics set starts off with the late, great,
Crown Prince of Reggae, Dennis Emmanuel Brown singing for us to “Smile…” and
“…dance this rebel (reggae) music.”  Since I feel one more D. Brown is
always appropriate, in comes another Dennis Brown on the same riddim, followed
by Beres Hammond with Come Back Home and Garnett Silk with Hello Mama
Africa.  Next Dennis Brown returns to the mix posing the question “Have
You Ever Been in Love?”  Capleton’s “Moving On,” the next biggest tune to
have been recorded on this Dennis Brown riddim follows before classic hits from
Sanchez, Beres, Gregory Issacs, and Frankie Paul back to back make it a true
lovers mood.
