Format: Audio CD
This is a great live Reggae album from the 20th Anniversary shows at Reggae on the River. There is something here for all Reggae fans- some roots, some dancehall, and some funk. I found a few of the tracks somewhat boring (see Marcia Griffiths, David Lindley, and Oliver 'Tuku' Mtukudzi), but the rest of the album rocks! My personal favorite is the opening track from Anthony B (Raid the Barn), which makes me move every time I play it. The sound quality on these recordings is impressive and crisp, yet still manages to capture the energy coming off of the crowd- which if you have never been to this event, is incredible. Get this CD. Listen to it a couple of times. Then start saving you money for next year's tickets!

I attended Reggae on the River in 2006, and this dvd is what inspired me to make that trip. This dvd also first introduced me to Michael Franti and Spearhead (who also performed in 2006) and several other acts that I hadn't seen as of yet. The quality is outstanding; the opening song (96 Degrees in the Shade, by Third World) gets the good vibes flowing, and several of the performances are utterly amazing. There are only a couple of songs I didn't care for (not a big fan of Baby Cham at all, and those fools from Trinindad and Tobago weren't very impressive)...but those lesser acts were more than overshadowed by incredible performances that include Israel Vibration, Culture, Stephen and Junior Gong Marley, David Lindley (love the muttonchops!) and Anthony B (I challenge you to watch "Raid di Barn" while resisting the urge to skank all over the place).

I highly, highly recommend this dvd to any reggae music fan. You will NOT be disappointed at all, I promise.
