Last week I scared myself the whole time.

The Compass Point All-Stars were the legendary group of musicians employed by Chris Blackwell to work at the equally legendary Compass Point studios in Nassau, Bahamas. One of them was Barry Reynolds, a guitarist and songwriter who had co-written the infamous Broken English album with Marianne Faithfull. The musicians were initially employed to work on the genius re-branding of Grace Jones that Blackwell had thought up with the help of Jean-Paul Goude. Released in 1983, Barry Reynolds' solo album was made within the magical period of 'The Three Holy Grace Jones Albums According To Makrugaik'. If you like those three albums as much as I do then prepare to be amazed once more. The Compass Point All-Stars were: Wally Badarou, Mikey Chung, Sly Dunbar, Robbie Shakespeare, Uzziah 'Sticky' Thompson and Barry Reynolds. Three tracks, just like the old days... Requests for encores will be considered. Makrugaik

Editors Note:
Makrugaik brought this album round to the studio today, I couldn't help getting real excited about it. Imagine unheard tracks by 'that' team of individuals. 'More Money' and 'The Doctor is Back' really do it for me.
