9. Ken Boothe, Inna De Yard
Ken Boothe - Inna de Yard

Ken Boothe’s first internationally released album in more than 20 years features new, unplugged versions of some of his most popular songs. Boothe was joined by several musicians to record the project at Inna De Yard, an outdoor studio in Jamaica, which lends its name to the album. The musical backing provides the ideal support for Boothe’s distinctive vocals, which are allowed to shine through on every track. Long-time fans of Boothe will surely enjoy the re-interpretations of classic material, whilst those unfamiliar with his extensive back catalogue may be prompted to go and dig in the vaults after listening. The new takes on “Speak Softly Love”, “Black, Gold and Green” and “Artibella” are the most striking. — Gibbo
