Although We Need More Love - Freddie McGregor - Bobby Bobylon McGregor began recording for Studio One in the '60s, first as a member of the Clarendonians and subsequently as a We Need More Love - Freddie McGregor - Bobby Bobylon artist throughout the next decade, producer Coxsone Dodd didn't get around to giving the singer a full-length until But it was well worth the wait, for Bobby Bobylon was a classic.

Half the album updates old singles to great effect and the rest is new, in the Jamaican sense of the word, for the numbers resurrected a clutch of Studio One gems that were revised and given new lyrics.

The island's rather unique publishing laws ensured a musical free for all, and a new generation of up-and-coming producers was gleefully and legally plundering the label's archives. Dodd began hitting Ragazzo Triste - Patty Pravo - Playlist inreleasing a stream of exceptional albums built on the back of his old rhythms, Bobby included.

The title track is an anthemic masterpiece, so infectious it's amazing that Babylon itself survived its onslaught. The sweet sermon on "Wine Amboy Dukes* - Marriage On The Rocks - Rock Bottom Violence" is nearly as magnificent, as is the sultry "I Am a Revolutionist. Jamaicans couldn't resist these stellar reworkings of old faves from the rocksteady and early reggae age.

McGregor 's fabulous sense of melody, rich vocals, and emotive performances both enhanced the lushness of the original melodies and were enhanced by them, the perfect combination.

No wonder this album was a hit, and how wonderful that Heartbeat has now reissued it on CD. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
