Lymie Murray meets the Stamina All Star - Good Things Forward

By on - Comment

Good things come forward with Lymie Murray and the Stamina Allstars.

Lymie MurrayJamaican singer Lymie Murray may not be one of the most well-known artists from the island, even though he made an excellent album two years ago along with several strong singles for various producers. His haunting and reverberating style is much in the same vein as the late Garnett Silk with clear gospel influences, and now he has a new album with California reggae veterans Stamina Allstars.

Good Things Forward is a full sounding set with live played and organic riddims. It’s packed with crucial grooves, bright horns and guest appearances by the gritty Ken Boothe and several notable Jamaican session musicians and mixing engineers, including Sly Dunbar, Nambo Robinson, Robbie Lyn, Franklin Waul, NoelSkullySimms, Fatta Marshall and Clive Hunt.

On Good Things Forward Lymie Murray gets to showcase his full vocal palette, as shown on tracks like Happier People, the skanking Ken Boothe combination Mutual Feeling, the catchy Streets on Fire and the funky For Cynthia.

This album is the result of a great collaboration between skilled American and Jamaican musicians and is a satisfying example of vintage-sounding contemporary reggae.
