This collection highlights the very best extended mixes released by Virgin Records on the company’s famed Front Line label, from 1976 to 1981. The 2CD set brings together the most sought-after reggae discomixes of the late 70s and early 80s and includes numerous recordings new to CD. Despite the fact that front line have already produced compilations recently that feature a fair number of discomixes ('presents roots' and 'sounds of reality'), they have still been able to squeeze out a mighty fine collection of such, as a stand alone set. Despite the brevity of the label's existence, the quality of material produced is nothing short of phenomenal, but i imagine that this will be the last in the series, as front line's timespan precludes both rocksteady and dancehall. The only real possibility for a further volume would be a 'deejay' set' although, again, a fair number of these were included in the 'roots' album (and here!).
42 track album featuring Jimmy Cliff, Aswad, UB40, Ziggy Maley, Desmond Dekker, Ken Booth & More.
