Double Trouble: Beres Hammond Stream + Giveaway

April 26, 2011

Words by Jesse Serwer


The great Beres Hammond is commanding our full attention today. Just moments after posting our own Top 10 favorite Beres Hammond tunes, our friends at VP Records passed us two copies of their new CD Our Favorite Beres Hammond Songs, featuring covers of Beres classics by Jah Cure, Busy Signal (whose version of “Tempted to Touch” we featured in our Valentine’s Day Lovers Rock post back in February), Tarrus Riley, Marcia Griffiths, Romain Virgo and more. All of the good vibes from these Beres tunes (not to mention the sudden, long-awaited arrival of sunshine in NYC) has us feeling generous, so we’re giving away the discs to the next two people who follow @Largeupdotcom on Twitter. Just send us a direct message (DM) with your address after the follow, and we’ll send you the groovy little thing in the mail. And, while you’re waiting, you can check out Tarrus Riley’s cover of “Groovy Little Thing” (and the album’s second single) right here:
