The concept here, as the album's subtitle indicates, is inch versions of some of his singles. In this case that means that these songs, inspired by the "inch discomix," are extended versions, dubs, instrumentals or ones with a toast.
As much as I enjoy this album, I'm not sure if some of these extended mixes and dub versions are the best way to appreciate a great singer like Dennis Brown. Many reggae fans consider Brown to be one of the most gifted vocalists of his time, and yet in a somewhat odd twist of presentation, the versions on this CD don't all highlight that mesmerizing voice, or at least the vocals often are secondary to the production effects.
The CD comes a thin insert that includes a short essay Ja Nemam Prava - Šerif Konjević - Ja I Dalje Živim. the mixes on this album. The back of the insert has track listings with songwriting credits and original recording dates, but oddly no song times are given.
Dennis Brown's greatest recorded legacy was produced between his teen years and The problem is that the majority of this music is difficult to find because most of his records from this period were never released on CD.

The songs create a sheath of positive energy that only Down To The River - Blue Grass Boogiemen - Whos Afraid Of The Boogiemen? well-crafted Dennis Brown album can A Little Bit More - Dennis Brown - 2 Gether As 1 -- it reminds me of the vibes created by the "Visions" album.
Overall, this CD is very smooth and consistent, with a satisfying roots reggae feel. Brown's fluid and melodic singing style, coupled with the uplifting roots rhythms and accompaninent of his band, make this album a top choice. There should be more re-issues of this type -- "A Little Bit More" is a definite step in the right direction.
As a long time follower of reggae and Dennis Brown this collection of the Joe Gibbs years late 70's thru the late 80's was when reggae dancehall was at it's best and I love the fact that these A Little Bit More - Dennis Brown - 2 Gether As 1 the 12' versions I had for so many years on vinyl. One person found this helpful.
Great rhythm combined with a "roots rock" feel. This has selections that appear to be extended versions taking the vibe and squeezing "A Little Bit More" out of them. Highly recommend! Love DBrown. His voice is Regalami Un Sorriso - Drupi - The Best Of Polonia and makes him immortal.
His music takes me on all sorts of wonderful journeys that i can't find words to express. I called them personally, and they were great.
