Special Acknowledgment

This project could not have happened without the tireless and creative efforts of the young writers I met in the MIR / FIWI Jamaica programme at UTECH, the Icon Dean Fraser whose horn arrangements brought even more magic to the songs and to Wade Johnson whose musical oversight and arrangements (keyboard strings on 1,2,3 Foreplay) ensured many of these songs will be added to the exclusive list of Jamaican classics.

To all the musicians, singers and engineers, I humbly say nuff respect! – Mikie Bennett
