Editorial Reviews

Lucky Dube (1964 2007)

South African born and globally revered, Lucky Dube is one of Africa s most beloved artists and one of reggae s most powerful voices. His music reached millions through his astonishing 22 albums recorded in English, Zulu and Afrikaans many of which have been record breakers with phenomenal sales from around the globe.

Retrospective is a tribute to the life and career of Lucky Dube who was tragically killed on October 18, 2007 in a Johannesburg carjacking. While its release marks the anniversary of his death, it more importantly celebrates the life work of a groundbreaking artist who helped effect profound social and political change in South Africa.

Curated by Tom Schnabel (KCRW), Retrospective features a faithful chronology that represents the different phases of Lucky Dube s career from his first release in 1981 to his last in 2007. It captures the genius, profound hope and the enduring truth of Lucky s message and the beauty in his music. Includes the bonus DVD Lucky Dube Live In Concert from 1992.

Lucky's style is as original as Bob Marley's. His use of stellar musicians, heavenly backup singers, and absolutely infectious choruses, hooks and grooves are why he is my favorite Reggae Artist. Yes, I know, Bob was the greatest and most influential, but Lucky Dube and his wonderful music just influenced me more. My musical roots span across a multitude of genres, and Lucky seemed to bridge them all. Skipper Shabalala playing on guitar was amazing, and sometimes shreding. Tonique Phala, Thandi Radebe and Gabisile Mdluli created some of the most heavenly backup vocals on earth. Lucky's writing style drove you toward a repeating factor in most of his songs. A catchy groove building up to a chorus that soared to majestic heights with the use of some amazing backup vocals. They would take the lead most times during the chorus and the groove and harmony would grab you hook, line and sinker. Songs like the The "Let the band play on", "Keep on Knocking", "It's not Easy", and "House of Exile" just sink into your soul and stay there for eternity. I hope his band, now known as One People, starts recording soon, because that kinda talent needs to live on.

This retrospective is very solid, and I give it 5 stars. It is an extemely nice cross section of his work. But I highly suggest you purchase his full albums as well, because there are gems all over them. This collection is a wonderful sampler for new fans, and hopefully Lucky's infectious grooves hook many more.

RIP Lucky Dube, you were taken from us much too soon.
