Default The riddims

The 'riddim' is such an integral part of reggae. The band have never really covered that many of the big riddims (with the exception maybe of 'The answer' and 'Cherry oh baby'), who would love to hear a rendition of 'Real rock', 'Darker shade of black' 'Mean girl' or 'Solomon'?

I've noticed this also. The cover of "holiday" uses a riddim but I can't remember the name.

Same for "just another girl" - that's declaration of rights isn't it?

Looking my love....awesome, great version of real rock.

Holiday is every day is just a holiday. Although I'm confused as riddimbase says Sizzla's 'made of' is the same riddim and I can never hear this.

Just another girl is self named I think.

There's a great riddim album called Digital Impact which has the 1997 version of Solomon. It really shows you who are the most talented artists when someone can create a completely new track from a tune that was thirty years old

Also a sign of respect when a riddim is used over n over by others
One In Ten Riddim

Maybe that's why, I have only heard the Paragons original once before.

Of course there was also the Rudie riddim that I'm lucky enough to own the 7" vinyl set of. I have the 1 in 10 somewhere too.

Would absolutely love to hear UB40 produce a one riddim album, something like Rudie with different artists including Earl, Duncan, Robin and Norman
