Marcia Griffiths is generally thought of as a reggae singer, and she is, but she's done her fair share of stuff with little or no reggae influence at all, some of it really awesome. One such side is her cover of Al Green's "Here I Am", one that would make Isaac Hayes proud, if it was three times longer. As it is, at four minutes, there is ample time to get in a groove. The laid back wah-wah is a nice touch.
Check the others too, in her more recognized role. She's so smooth. I'm really digging that last one, a later thing with Lady G, whom I suppose I should know, but most post-eighties reggae is a blur to me anyway.
