Music Review: 'Mento Madness' from Various Artists

Chris Nickson reviews the CD Mento Madness: Motta's Jamaican Mento 1951-56. The disc is a compilation of material from the Jamaican "MRS" label founded by Kingston business man Stanley Motta. The CD is not yet available in the U.S., but Nickson hopes that will soon change.
