Richie Davis - Nubian Woman - Cousins

So good to see the UK vocalists getting a chance to work again. I can't recall the last time, two albums (see Roger Robin) have come out at the same time, never mind the same year!!! Like Jah Shaka these are Mafia and Fluxy rhythms, and like Jah Shaka - Donville knows that you can't produce Richie in the same way as would Michael Rose. Richie sounds a lot like Dennis Brown, and you need a warm big sound to wrap around a voice like that. And this is what you get here. The lyrics go from the cultural 'Jah World' to love songs like 'Let Me Love You' it all works very well because of the production work. Hopefully there will be more to come.
