Lovers Rock is to Reggae what Soul love songs are to Rhythm and Blues. Both Lovers Rock and soul love songs narrate romantic love and sexual ecstasy. Beres Hammond is reggae music most popular lover’s rock troubadour.
His love songs are provocative and sensual, raw (rude boy), yet tantalizingly amorous with passion. His themes and lyrics ride the highway of venerable sexual and romantic emotions.
They have hearts pulsating, knees weak, couples fall in love and make babies. Single ladies become amorous with wet panties. His smoky honey –dipped sandpaper tenor, with its raw soul power, lyrically glides through the many moods and subtle nuances of lovemaking and romance. From rude boy rough rider songs like ‘360 Turn’ (mi Nah guh deal wid it ur way… Wid all di latin music a play, di dining and violin and lay lay …yu gonna have to mek 360 turn or else stay on your own… either yu like it or leave it… mi know enuff fi know when gal a swing mi), the sensuously stimulating ‘Come Back Home’, ‘When’ and ‘Is this a Sign.’ Listening to Beres sing love songs is an exercise in orgasmic rapture.
These tears jerkers of orgasmic romance were compiled from one-off singles and album cuts outside his popular hits catalog of songs with various producers. The producers range from the Beres’ own independent label, Harmony House Records, the Late Phillip “Fattis’ Burrell, Exterminator Records, Willie Lindo’s J& W Records, Sly & Robbie’s Taxi Label, Electra Records, Germaine Penthouse Records, Richard “Bello” Bell/Star trail Records and VP Records.
