Album Review

Like Bob Marley and the Wailers, Freddie McGregor started his career as part of the legendary Studio One cadre of Jamaican crooners. Golden-voiced and subtly charismatic, he has been a consistently popular singer since the '60s. The Anthology presents a brilliant overview of Freddie McGregor's deep impact on Jamaican music. Opening with his best-known hits, the '80s classics "Big Ship" and "Stop Loving You," McGregor's soulful talent is unquestionable, but it's on the rare Studio One tracks that a glimpse of his skilled ability to translate emotion is really evident.

The Anthology is an essential addition to all reggae collections.
