Spine-tingling sounds and rhythms to which we have all grown accustomed over the years. To hear it thus packaged now into this quintessential mood and feeling gives the human ear a gem of great listening pleasure, and lends a beautiful emotion to this masterful opus. One gets the impression that the warmth and vibrations of the people of Belle Eau Road, and all of Belmont, Woodbrook and surrounding areas where originality in panmusic and our other cultural mediums emerged, evolved and where capacities for musical expression were honed and explored are all represented in this encapsulation of the human spirit. In simple parlance, this damn ting sweet for days.
