F.J. - That's The Way
Essential as with every entry into the Smiling C catalogue, That's The Way is the work of Fritz Bootle, Jr. aka F.J., busily song-making in early 90s Grand Bahama. His moreish blend of r'n'b, reggae and disco, touched with the burgeoning influence of soca, was developed during evenings after work spent in Frank Penn's legendary studio on Freeport, G.B.I. Recordings. Crisply produced, keenly structured and lovingly crooned over, each of the six tracks on That's The Way belong in your essential weddings / special date bag / playlist.
