When Reggae went commercial. From 1988 and a well deserved worldwide smash for London band Aswad who formed back in 1974 and had their debut album released in 1976. They did a bit of a UB40 and went overground. The main trio of Brinsley “Dan” Forde (on vocals and rhythm guitar), Angus “Drummie Zeb” Gaye (on vocals and drums), and Tony “Gad” Robinson (on bass) are still performing on the Nostalgia tours.
The main track was written by professional songwriters Albert Hammond and Diane Warren and was originally a release by veteran soul singer, Luther Ingram the previous year. Ace of Bass and Tina Tuner also did versions of the song.
The 12″ remix was done by band member Drummie Zeb with Lee Hamblin. It has a interpolation of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling”
The B-side was the self penned and produced “Woman” and I prefer it to the overplayed A-side. Your more traditional reggae style.
