Maxi Priest - Wild World 12" - 1988

Remember Maxi Priest? Maybe you do and maybe you don't. If you were around in the 80's I'm sure you do. This was a pretty big hit for him. If you weren't around in the 80's you may not know him. I don't know that he get much play these days even on 80's music stations.

This is a remake of the Cat Stevens classic. This give is a sort of UB40 reggae style treatment. Sort of the warm fuzzy adult contemporary thing UB40 did so well in the 80's and 90's. You get a couple mixes of the song her. The first one is a 6 minute jazzy thing. It sort of takes its time wondering through the song. That is okay. With reggae music there is no need to rush things.

"On and On" is another electro pop reggae number. And then the third track is essentially the 3 and a half minute dub "Wild World". So you can take that and lay that under some song to make your own laid back mashup. If you do send it to me, because I'd like to hear it.

Enjoy!
