This week’s pick is ‘Lovers Leap Showcase’ by Bim Sherman, my favorite Jamaican singer, hands down.  The album, released in 1979, is a stunning listen!  Not only do you have the vocal stylings of Bim Sherman, but also on this album you have the Soul Syndicate and the Roots Radics laying down the riddims. 

Babylon feel ‘dis one all week long!
