Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Audio CD
For both value for money and the quality of music this 2-CD delivers big-time! You get 40 lively and terrific songs, classified by the compilers as Ska, but many tunes also fitting comfortably inside the boundaries of traditional reggae. Whatever the label, this is fun stuff.

A few big names on here --- Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, The Skatalites, Desmond Dekker, Justin Hinds, etc. --- but probably not many songs you are familiar with. I own several dozen reggae and ska compilations, and what I like about this set is that it doesn't repeat much of what I have already. Many of the songs on here were produced by legends such as Duke Reid and Lesley Kong, which should help to confirm their quality. This is indeed gold standard Jamaican music, all recorded during the vintage period 1962-1966.

The CD set comes with a nice 12-page booklet with liner notes by Michael de Koningh. Track listings include songwriting and producer credits but no song times.

I own some of the tunes, but others were new to me. Over all it is a fun compilation to listen to!
