Biography

One of the most popular reggae bands in the world, Third World is also the most enduring. Jamaica's longest-running self-contained band (only The Wailers existed when Third World was formed in 1973), the group has not only been hailed as the "reggae ambassador" but is often credited as the first reggae act to incorporate funk, Philly soul, hip-hop, South African township music, ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful reggae May 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This disc has an appropriate and telling title, "Reggae Ambassadors." They were and still are one of the best bands to have surfaced despite Bob Marley getting most of the attention then and now. Third World were contemporaries of Bob Marley and I was lucky enough to have seen them both on the same stage. Third World have some of the sweetest soulful vocals that is reminiscent of the best American soul dating back to the 60's. This is not to say that the music is only reggae soul but rather a hybrid that flucuates and integrates the patois of the streets.There music is the best of both worlds with a highly polished yet raw sound. The songs featured on this disc are some of their best songs from the various LP's they released.There are several live songs, including "Jah Glory," "African Woman," and "Breaking Up is Hard to Do." The two discs features songs from thirteen different albums so there are bound to be some songs missing. Most of the signature Third World songs are here like "96 Degrees in The Shade," "Always Around" and "Talk to Me." There are also some oddities, previously unreleased songs, DJ edits and( including a 8:15 version of "Now That We Found Love") 12 inch versions of several songs. This deluxe two disc set is part of the Looking Forward to Looking Back Chronicles where the intent is to discover again. If your reggae knowledge is limited and you are just discovering Jamaicas sweet sound than give Third World a listen. They had great vocals, sweet harmony and music that was danceable while the lyrics stimulated your mind. A great package from one the best bands to emerge from the world of reggae music.

5.0 out of 5 stars for the third world novice May 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD
this two disc set is a primer for those just getting their first taste of the "reggae ambasssdors" their early work fits seamlessly with their later work. i have been a fan since the mid-seventies and my entire cd collection was lost through no fault of my own. if you are just hearing them or hearing OF them this two disc set is a great starter set. there is no weak or subpar track on the set.

thanks for reading

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the most diverse of any reggae band... November 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Nice 31 song double disk retrospective covering 1975-1992. Easily the most diverse of any reggae band, with a lot of R&B and African influences with rock guitar. Good liner notes, B&W photos and the songs are chronological. Special guests include Stevie Wonder and the Brecker Brothers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete And Brilliant February 17, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you are a fan of 3rd World, this is a must. It contains all of their big hits from the early 1970s up until the early 1990s. Reggae changed a great deal in those years - ranging from slow political roots reggae of the early 1970s to the disco/electro pop influence of the late 1970s/early 1980s and then to the dance hall sound of the late 1980s/early 1990s. 3rd World's music catalogue seems to change effortlessly with the times from "96 Degrees in the Shade," to "Try Jah Love," to "Commited." I am not a big fan of box sets, but this one is a must, even for those who don't know much about reggae, this will be a great intro.
