We gave it an A-

This impassioned Jamaican vocalist often coupled Rastafarian imagery with fervent Christian preaching, an unusual combination in ’70s reggae. But fiery soul-stirrers aren’t all that Deliver Me From My Enemies offers. Yabby You’s charisma also animates secular lover’s pleas like ”Lonely Me” — he’s equally at ease over gentle roots grooves and choppy dub mixes. Drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare live up to their legendary reputation throughout, but these powerful performances are all about You.
