7. Frankie Paul, “Thanks & Praises”
Frankie Paul is mostly known for his stinging dancehall hits, even if he is unparalleled in dropping lovers rock on Jammy’s riddims. “Worries in the Dance,”–whether the extra dark, original Channel One production or the more dancehall-friendly reworking on Yellowman’s “I’m Getting Married in the Morning” riddim–is normally what Frankie Paul’s name conjures up. However “Give Thanks and Praise” from his somewhat overlooked Come Back Again album is a true gem. Kick, snare, bass AND lead organ instantaneously kicks into the Lord’s Prayer with astonishing rewindability. Give Thanks, FP!
