||Yardcore CD (1997)
Edley Shine music CDs While most hip-hop/reggae hybrids feature endless streams of lyrics indistinguishable to those not familiar with the dialect, Born Jamericans slow up the beat and infuse the style with lover's rock.

High points include "State of Shock," which features Johnny Osbourne, and the cover of Frankie Avalon's "Venus." Even though the style gets a bit long winded and the tracks tend to blur, there is still enough strong material on this album to make it worth listening to, and perhaps slow dancing to as well. ~ Curtis Zimmermann

||Best of the Born Jamericans CD (2002) |
Edley Shine CD discography Recorded between 1994 and 1997. Originally released on Delicious Vinyl Records. Includes liner notes by Barry Benson.
Rhino's 2002 collection The Best of the Born Jamericans is an excellent summary of the duo's recordings for Delicious Vinyl, containing five songs apiece from Kids from Foreign and Yardcore, plus two previously unreleased tracks and a dancehall remix of their biggest hit, "Boom Shak A-Tack." Although they never got much bigger than that song, they did mix hip-hop, ragga and reggae quite nimbly, and this is the best place for the curious to check it out. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Additional personnel includes: Spragga Benz, Johnny Osbourne (vocals).
