For six straight years, the Reggae Gold series has turned out the must-have reggae album of the year and Reggae Gold 99 upholds the winning streak. Cramming the year's hottest singles on one disc, there's representation from every corner of reggae on this offering, from Morgan Heritage's roots to Sanchez' lover's rock to even Machel Montano's reggae soca.
The next big thing is always quickly spotted on the year's Reggae Gold collection and this year, it looks like DJ Mr. Vegas, with three hits. From his breakout scorcher "Heads High" to his hard-hitting "Wave" to his perfectly blended duet with Sean Paul, Mr. Vegas is the one to watch. ~ Rosalind Cummings-Yeates
