    If Sun King owner Ian Jones hasn't done enough with tracking down long disappeared `60s Jamaican reggae pioneer Claudius Linton and arranging for the new Roots Master, he also released the Vintage Roots Reggae Singles Volume I CD/DVD retrospective (more volumes are likely, too) and convinced Linton ("Kingman") to record again, with him ("Jonah"), for the surprisingly spry Sign Time. 22 years has done zero damage to Linton's mellifluous vocal chords, full of butter and syrup, still. And the all-star oldster band assembled in Marley's old Tuff Gong studios (Dwight Pinkney, Ansel Collins, Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, Keith Francis, Bongo Herman) ensures that Sign has a vintage feel/touch/throb despite cleaner `00s recording. Linton's awareness has also not faded, as per "World War III," the folky "Redemption Song"-ish "Baghdad" -- how little humans learn -- and the anti-corruption "In the Street." ~ Jack Rabid

    The Beat (Magazine) (p.8) - "[T]here's a relaxed 'country' feel to the playing and Linton's warm and weary vocals."
