Interesting trivia for the track B4: It's marked as a traditional and it's actually a version of an old Russian song called: Подмосковные вечера, also known as Midnight In Moscow. It's hard to recognize the song in as heavily stripped down/dubbed up reggae version but you if you listen to the bass player's chords it's recognizible as the bassline of the jazz adaptation of the Russian song, so maybe someone recorded this tune as a Jamaican instrumental too. At least jazz versions of this song were very popular.
