While Skylarking is really the second Horace Andy album by this name, the 1997 release is actually a compilation of tracks from throughout his formidable career, put together for release on Melankolic (the label run by British trip-hop trio Massive Attack). Skylarking stretches from 1970 Studio One cuts such as "Fever" and "Every Tongue Shall Tell" to some of his Massive Attack highlights, like the eerie pulse and creep of "One Love" and "Spying Glass," which actually appears in two versions

Features Song Lyrics for Horace Andy's Skylarking album. Horace Andy - Skylarking Album Lyrics. 1. Natty Dread A Weh She Want Lyrics.

Horace Andy has one of those voices you can’t unhear. Produced by Coxsone Dodd at the legendary Studio One, Skylarking-a roundup of Andy’s earliest singles packaged as a debut album-captured a particular strain of early '70s reggae: lovers rock with a touch of roots, smooth and pop-friendly but with an eeriness creeping around the edges. It's a balance embodied in Andy’s high, haunting voice
