Editors’ Notes Jamaican reggae star Sugar Minott is likely best known for the 1981 hit "Good Thing Going," a smooth slice of lovers rock that resets an old Michael Jackson tune amid vibrant horns and subtle, melancholy guitar. His croon is perfect for the song's romantic mood, but since debuting his soundsystem in the late '60s, Minott has plied that voice to a wide range of reggae: heady dub and raw roots music, too. On "Herbman Hustling," he swims through a beat dominated by bubble sounds and percussion dense with reverb. "Hard Time Pressure" is a gritty political track, Minott venting about life in Babylon over an unsettling lo-fi rhythm.
