Another superb and criminally overlooked Gregory LP. This is one of his most mellow and romantic Lovers Works. He didn't sound that relaxed and smooth ever before.
"Come Along" was produced by King Jammy and the only musicians here were Steely & Clevie. This reduced Sound charms Gregory's fine arranged vocals, occasional pepped up with some female/male backing Vocals, that are also mixed way beyond in the mix. The Songs here are all very good and romatic. The weakest one "Give Love a Try" gets saved by the mighty Bassline of the Real Rock Riddim. What makes this album so outstanding is it's minimal musical approach. The Bass and all other instruments are programmeds. The melodies are created by the Keyboard: if it is a nice Piano fill or some rootsy organ stabs, that set the pace , while (synthesized) Strings or Horns are nicely used for accents. The skills of Wycliffe "Steely" Johnson on Keyboards are outstanding. He has to substitute a complete Rhythm Section with Horns and Guitars and succeeeds . I love especially the few Xylophone parts . All this and Clevie's Bass-Programming floats together with the Voices and gets finely woven by King Jammy at the Controls.
It's astonishing but in fact here less is more.
All this wouldn't mean a thing if the song material and the vocal performance wasn't top notch. Here we have a perfect example for early computerized Reggae / Lover's Rock - the perfect Background for an intimate Rendesvouz or relaxed evenings and chill-out situatons.
