But things take a turn toward lovers rock when Drummie Zeb croons the easy-rolling, romantic Your Recipe. And it's hard to think of a more effective roots-reggae anthem than Drum & Bass Line.

Love Fire gained wide recognition when it was used as the backing rhythm for Dennis Brown's Promised Land.
