Version Like Rain features three "rhythm showers", showing how Scratch could use the same rhythm over again and make it sound fresh. Three rhythms are showcased: the groovy "Want A Wine", the simmering "Fever", and the militant "Beat Down Babylon". Highlights include Susan Cadogan's sexy version of "Fever", Leo Graham's naughty "Want A Wine" and all of the "Beat Down Babylon" versions, especially "Informer Man" with the righteous Jah T. Creative DJs will want to pick this one up to make their own custom rhythm showers.
