Jah Cure True Reflections...A New Beginning
- Words: James Mayo
- Label: VP
This past July, Jah Cure became a free man, after serving an eight-year sentence for rape and armed robbery in Jamaica. Always maintaining his innocence-despite anguished testimony from the victim-he kept busy by recording in his jail's rudimentary studio, releasing three albums and a number of singles. This collection compiles his latest hits ("Longing For," "Love Is") and shows why this affecting soul singer has become one of Jamaica's most respected musical icons. Jah Cure's phrasing expresses a sadness and optimism that continues to inspire sufferers worldwide. On the title track, he pleads, "I swear I can be a better man." With a fresh start, Jah Cure pledges to deliver on the promise of this redemption song.
