Ali Baba Styleeeeee (MP3 Review)


WWW, November 2007 - The Ali Baba Riddim has inspired many vocalists and DUB engineers to record some of their better works. 28 minutes of this great riddim definitely isn't too much, here!

They're all there: from the obvious John Holt tune that gave the title to this riddim to the legendary King Tubby dubbing it up BIGTIME, from the necessary Dr Alimantado trimming the barber to the unexpected David JAHSon in showcase style.

Definitely a crucial selection of which 28 minutes isn't too much at all. Especially not when you consider that each and every one of the tracks in this mix can be considered among the better works of each artist individually, too.
