4.0 out of 5 stars Cool Runnings and Level Vibes, Mon. July 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Truly a great festival dedicated to the memory of Bob Marley. This CD includes most of the groups responsible for the resurgence of the "roots reggae" sound that regained popularity in the early 1990's. There is no so called "dance hall" music on this record, thank Jah (dance hall typically incorporates rap, reggae, and techno).
The CD includes fantastic tracks by Eek-a-mouse, Steel Pulse, and very soulful efforts from various female vocalists.
A special treat is the track "Sugar Pie" performed by a twelve year old Ziggy Marley which is both amuseing and enjoyable.
Enjoy this disk when your feeling especially IRIE.
Goes well with Ganga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Vinyl Album Tracks May 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have been transferring all my vinyl to digital and I've noticed a few things about the CD versions of these albums. One, for single Reggae albums, more obscure ones in particular, they will often rearrange song titles and add songs. Two, for double albums they will typically omit tracks, so they can release it on one CD. This album is no exception. Missing tracks on this CD are KKK and Smile Jamaica by Steel Pulse from Side 1.

Here is the original track list for those interested -

Side 1 (Steel Pulse)

Sound System

Ku Klux Klan

Handsworth Revolution

Smile Jamaica

Side 2

Belly Full A/K/A Them Bellyfull - Rita Marley & the I-Threes

Sugar Pie - Melody Makers & the Wailers

Wa Do Dem - Eek A Mouse & the Wailers

If I Had the World - Dennis Brown

Side 3

Plastic Smile - Black Uhuru

Guess Who's Comoming to Dinner - Black Uhuru

The Bed's Too Big Without You - Sheila Hylton

Soon Forward - Gregory Isaacs

Side 4

The Harder They Come - Carlene Davis

Right Time - Mighty Diamonds

1865 (96 In the Shade) - Third World

Rock the World - Third World

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Album BUT........ August 15, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album in the early 80s, back before the days of CDs. It was a 2-disc compilation that had at least 18-20 tracks, including a total of four tracks by Steel Pulse. Their rendition of "Ku Klux Klan" was the best I've ever heard, but now it's lost to new listeners of this compilation. It's a deep disappointment to me that the people who released this CD chose to exclude some very great songs. All we have now are tidbits from each artist that whet our appetite for more. The sound quality of this festival is THE BEST I've ever heard of any live recording: you feel like you're really there (!), so it makes it all the more disappointing that any other versions I may get of the lost songs will be inferior. I suggest to anyone who really loves high-quality reggae concerts, that they buy the 2-disc record version instead of this CD version (those of you who still own turntables!). There are places online that do carry the record for about the same price [you can look the title up on your favourite search engine]. Or maybe one day Amazon will find copies of the record to sell (?).

For those who love vintage reggae, it just doesn't get much better. This cd also provides some nice Jamaican flavor and shows how recordings of live performances can have so much more soul than studio versions. An outstanding farewell to the master!
