Arm Your Soul.

"Tumblin' Down (Remix)" & "Have You Ever Been to Hell (Remix)" - Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers
Bomb Squad guru Hank Shocklee remixed these tunes back in 1988 and I looked for quite a while to find them to share. Big thanks to Sandman74 for this. The Melody Makers were all Marleys too: Ronnie, Bobby, Ricky and Mike...if I like the girl, who cares who you like? In reality (and not some weird New Edition brainfart) the Melody Makers were Bob's other children - Sharon, Steven and Cedella. These songs are taken from their Best Reggae Grammy-winning album, Concious Party. Tumblin' Down was a #1 hit on the R&B and Hot Dance Music Billboard charts. Have You Ever Been To Hell wasn't released as a single but it's my favorite and this version was never released in the USA. In other news no one really cares about: I saw Ziggy Marley & The Melody Makers open for INXS the same year.
