After a four year hiatus, Greensleeves resurrects the popular compilation series The Biggest One Drop Anthems. This year's approach is a little different.  The 13-track-set is produced solely by Jamaica's legendary music producer, Clive Hunt.
Clive Hunt has produced roots reggae classics with some of Jamaica’s finest artists including The Abyssinians, Peter Tosh, The Wailers and Jimmy Cliff.  Clive Hunt also produced international hits for Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones and Grace Jones.
VP Records matched Clive Hunt with selected foundation and new roots artists to forge The Biggest One Drop Anthems 2015.  The album features new exclusive tracks from Jah 9, Iba Mahr, Jah Vinci, Raging Fyah, Richie Spice, Randy Valentine and Yahsha.
The series also features three inspired cover versions:  Luciano's adaptation of Rod Taylor's His Imperial Majesty; Ikaya's take on the Steel Pulse anthem Worth His Weight in Gold (Rally Round) and Etana's Stepping Out of Babylon, originally recorded by Marcia Griffiths.
Musicians on the project include Drummers Kirk Bennett and Anthony Watson, guitarists Lamont 'Monty' Savory and Winston 'Bopee' Bowen, bassists Aeion Hoilett and Danny 'Axeman' Thompson and keyboardists Robbie Lyn and Franklin Waul.
The album artwork was created by renowned graphic artist, Tony McDermott.
