Super Eight was the original Jamaican release of George Faith's more famous Island album To Be A Lover. Featuring backing vocals by The Meditations and The Diamonds, this is perhaps Lee Perry's smoothest production, a real polished gem. George Faith is a first rate crooner, even if some of his choices for covers border on cheesy. Highlights include the impassioned "I've Got The Groove" and the lovely "To Be A Lover", a cover of William Bell's "I Forgot To Be Your Lover". Getting your hands on a copy of this rare Jamaican issue would be great find, as it features one song that didn't make it onto the more popular Island release, "There's A Train".
