The fellas have definitely pulled everything together for their 5th release, with songs that are musically 'full'; the singing in harmony, the melodic bass lines, and everyone's favorites,... The BGV singers. The variation is good, so many different styles: roots reggae, calypso, oldies, to good old Jimmy Hendrix style rock and roll. And as always, songwriting that takes the listener back to memory lane. This time they include some newer material about the current conditions in Panama and the Canal Zone. In essence, this album is a strong representation of how much the band has grown, but are still able to kick the Shorty&Slim Style that we have come to love. Shorty&Slim has kept true to their music and their message with RTJV!!!
