Beres Hammond- “Just A Man”
Album Reviews | Jun 14th, 2010
Record Label: VP Records
Genre: Reggae/Lover’s Rock
“Just A Man” a hit record in Jamaica in 1979 by Reggae crooner, Beres Hammond is now available on CD, remastered and with a bonus track. Produced by legend, Joe Gibbs, Beres Hammond began his music career in Jamaica singing R&B, lover’s rock compared to straight up reggae tracks. With a powerful soulful voice, Beres Hammond has gone on to a successful career as being one of the best in the business with R&B/Reggae music.
“Music is a positive vibration,” starts off this 10 track record and what a perfect way for an album to start! Upbeat and great to dance to, Beres Hammond always had such smooth and controlled vocals that to this day are to match against. A few of the early tracks on “Just a Man” are definitely creating that positive fun vibe, with even some disco thrown in. It was the 70s after all.
Bottom Line: Excellent look back at a reggae/soul legend. A must have for any reggae fans collection
Notable Tracks: Music is a positive vibration, Do this world a favour, i’m in love with you, John Crazy
