This set, with its powerful melodies, brilliant playing (note the superb horns) and all round attitude, is a sparkling reminder of how reggae sounded when it first influenced the world music scene in the Seventies. But it afso bears testimony to the sophisticated consciousness, wisdom and Afrocentric worldview that were the trademarks of the Rasta rebel soul at that time. This music had weight. That 'Roots' and 'Culture' became pilloried cliches at the beginning of the 80s says something about the rot that had set in at the heart of reggae - and just as much about, how times had changed. The idea of Roots - kind of personified by Alex Haley's mid-Seventies book and TV series of the same period - typified the search for an African identity, after centuries of physical and then economic slavery, amongst Jamaican youth.

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!).

Trojan Records TSBCD 750 | orig. rel: 1998-99 | 6900Mb

This whopping 30-CD box set gathers together the best of Trojan's three-disc box set series. Included are the Ska, DJ, Dub, Instrumentals, Jamaican Superstars, Lovers, Producer Series, Rocksteady, Roots, and Tribute to Bob Marley volumes, each of which can be found under Trojan Box Set for their individual reviews. What's lacking here is a booklet with additional notes and information; the bulk seems to demand some extra coverage and care, yet all that's here are the original notes of each volume – only as much text as can fit on the back of the CD sleeves.

Canada is today the world’s third producer of diamonds both in value and quantity. These are not just any diamonds, they are ice diamonds or «clean» diamonds in opposition with Africa’s «blood» diamonds that finance war, weapons and use child labor. Clean diamonds are widely appreciated on the international market for their purity as well as their ethics. Extracting these rocks is no easy feat. By minus 50 degrees celsius and polar winds, thousands of men work in giant open-air mines of 1,5 km diameter.

The budget-minded three-disc box set Ska Box Anthology is something of a hodgepodge, freely mixing Jamaican ska, British Two-Tone ska revival, and modernized '80s dancehall reggae without much rhyme or reason…
