    MANY MOODS OF SLY, ROBBIE AND THE TAXI GANG, a 1991 album, shows off the powerhouse rhythm section and production team in a familiar setting, leading sessions for various singers under the guise of their own Taxi Records imprint. After letting Taxi idle for most of the '80s, Sly and Robbie reactivated the imprint in the early '90s. What's most interesting about hearing the new Taxi material after the dancehall-electronic revolution of the mid '80s is how much the dancehall artists copped, consciously or not, from Sly and Robbie's original Taxi singles! All the elements are there, including the way that Robbie Shakespeare's bass is used as a melodic lead instrument and the seamless melding of electronic and live percussion that is Sly Dunbar's sonic trademark. While sounding utterly contemporary, tracks like the opening instrumental "Unmetered Taxi" and the atmospheric "Outlaw Josey Wales" also sound like they could have come off of any of the duo's previous Taxi releases. Therein lies their charm.
