"Album Review- CD "Hey Mr." by Rula Brown"

After 6 previously strong CD's the versatile Rula Brown comes up with a brandnew album entitled "Hey Mr.(Do you Have A Heart To Give)". Just like the previous CD, this album is a well varied collection of sweet and smooth lovers songs, roots tunes and message songs. As expected Rula Brown sure knows to pick the right riddims and perfect covers to harmonize with his voice, which reminds us of Richie Stephens.
The opening track Boink is a wonderful lovers tune across a vintage Studio One riddim, followed by a superb and awesome lovers tune called I'm All Out Of Love, which uses the Dennis Brown riddim "Sitting And Watching" and was a great pop hit for the band Air Supply. Next comes the "Stir It Up' riddim which he uses for the title track Hey Mr. (Do You have A Heart "To Give) . A decent adaption of the "Swing Easy" riddim is used for the roots song Peace In The Valley Of Love. Once more Rula returns to a great Bob Marley riddim, this time it's the "Mr. Brown" riddim which he licks on the standout track I Wanna Know. Rocksteady time comes next as he does a solid remake of the Gayladds' Hard To Confess, but the tone changes radically when he teams up with Skanky Dan for the dancehall track You Send Me. For more dancehall niceness check out Bad Bwoyz on which he teams up with Cobra. Alongside singer Lukie D. he comes up with yet another fine lovers tune called Move Me Baby. Soca fans will love the the tune Remember Ma & Pa. Remember the Kool & The Gang hit "Get Down On It?"...well Rula brings you his full swing interpration of the song, here retitled as Jamdong Party. Although the tune Once Upon A Time was written by Delroy Wilson, we prefer Dennis Brown's version of the song, but Rula's version is a noteworthy remake of the song. When I First Saw You is a sweet duet with Marilyn, and the album closes with a very personal song, Interview With God, which everyone should check out.
Musicians on board include the Firehouse Crew, Lew Chang, Bobbie Reece, Lorenzo Conte, Robert Thread Wylin, Lamar Mitchell, Raphael and Dennis Halliburton. The fitting background vocals are provide by Raphael, Bobbie Reece, Rula Brown, Marilyn, Andi and Robert Thread Wylin. All of this was recorded at Music Works, Penthouse, Hostile Music Lab, HCF Recording, Shore Fire, INGOMA Music Lab and Mixing Lab.

"Album Review- CD "Positivity""

Rula Brown :
"Positivity", yet another great album from Rula Brown! Yeah man, his 6th CD produces conscious lyrics abound over rugged riddims and the singing crisp as ever. Musicians include the Firehouse Crew so you know quality was job one here. The first cut is super nice and then is followed by an adapted version of BRANDY. I really like the title track, POSITIVITY, the track is well produced and arranged with original lyrics. The best part of this CD is that every dollar made is being donated to the Granny-ICY Academic Scholarship to educate high school & college students in Kingston, Jamaica. - Ejaness Reggae Comprehensive
