Anthony B – Cold Feet (1996)

Had a lyric on my mind on the train home today and just couldn’t place it.

Finally, worked through options and realised it was this. This is a superb cover (and radically reworked) version of the Tracy Chapman original from her 1995 LP “New Beginning”.

Stylistically, quite similar to The Fugees’ reworking of the Bob Marley, era-defining, classic “No Woman, No Cry”. However, Anthony B was taking on the work of a mortal and, consequently, has an easier task to land a punch.

Not sure how I stumbled on this, may have been a recommendation in the “Rough Guide to Reggae”. Wherever the clue came from, I’m glad it reached me. Classic slice of 1990s reggae with a nod or two to the hip hop aristocracy.
