4. “My Wish”/ “A Little More Time” f/Buju Banton (1993)

While Beres’ lyrics are essentially the same on these two tunes, it’s not just the appearance of Buju Banton that makes them different. The Buju tune “A Little More Time” is the better known of the two but engineer Steven Stanley’s mix on Beres’ “My Wish” gives that version an ethereal, eerie and haunting quality that sets it apart from other tunes on the ubiquitous Tonight riddim.
