Forever Version is the debut album from Jamaican reggae deejay Dennis Alcapone. It was released in 1971 by Studio One, and features Alcapone toasting over some of the label's greatest hits.[2] The album was engineered by Sylvan Morris who left large parts of the original vocal tracks in the mix, with Alcapone appearing to answer back to the singers.[2] Tracks which formed the basis for the album include Larry Marshall's "Nanny Goat" (on "Nanny Goat Version"), The Cables' "Baby Why", Carlton and The Shoes' "Love Me Forever" ("Forever Version"), two tracks from The Heptones ("Baby Version" and "Sweet Talking Version"), and one from The Wailers ("Dancing Version").[2] The album was reissued by Heartbeat Records on compact disc in 1991, and again in an expanded form in 2007, with six bonus tracks.[3]
