One in a Million: The Best of Sanchez Sanchez Primary Artist
Shop on Barnes & Noble


Sanchez is Jamaica's heartthrob and one of the island's most consistent recording artists, but he remains a nonentity in the States. This best-of compilation offers a big dose of what non-{|Sanchez|} fans have been missing. One in a Million is a melodic, midtempo number that sounds like a hit from the first note, Sanchez's honeyed but strident voice rings every drop of emotion from the lyrics, like he does with everything he sings. Where I Lay My Hat (Is My Home) not only tops {|Marvin Gaye|}'s original, but {|the Temptations|}' featuring Paul Williams on lead as well. And he doesn't disappoint on reggae remakes of Soon as I Get Home, Wildflower, and Brown Eye Girl either. He begs harder than {|Keith Sweat|} on the pleading Give It a Chance, and tenderly offers his heart on Here I Am. The 19 selections never get boring because of Sanchez's unique delivery and God-given vocal skills.
