MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 01:36:27 | 230 Mb
Genre: Africa, Music, World / Label: Mr Bongo

The Original Sound Of Mali samples tracks from across the landlocked West African country. Has Psychedelic Rock vie with Afro-Cuban Rhumba. Tumbling drums and swirling Vox Continental. Ray Manzarek backing the Lizard King`s thing while Abel Lima E Les Sofas launch into a Cabo Verde killer. Fela-Like keys and brass punctuation. The Jazz of Satchmo`s muted horn. Guitars that move between acoustic strum, Link Wray twang, hypnotic snaking figures, and virtuoso Blues picking. Flute and violin in a duet that recalls Shadow`s D`Hardest. Balaphon Jams and Funk as tight as The Daktaris covering James Brown. Grooves as loose as the Lijadu Sisters. Vocals in carnival chant, or Salif Keita`s plaintive soar. Tempos that rise and fall as naturally as imagined tides.

VA - Trojan: A Jamaican Story Box Set (2001)
Roots Reggae / Early Reggae / Jamaica Ska / Dub | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 3,71 Gb
Label: Trojan Records | Release Year: 2001

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. From a music standpoint, however, this box is excellent; a truly diverse and comprehensive collection. Of the 500 songs, less than ten reappear on another volume, so you get a more-than-satisfying amount of music spanning the history of the Trojan label.

Genre: Reggae | Label: Trojan | Fserve, Fsonic

The Hudson Affair: This is an excellent retrospective of Keith Hudson's production work between the late sixties and middle seventies. Featuring more than 50 prime reggae cuts along with first-class packaging and sleeve notes, this has to be considered the definitive Hudson collection - although to be honest, there's not much competition out there. Setting out with Ken Boothe's great OLD FASHION WAY from 1969, THE HUDSON AFFAIR takes in early reggae classics from singers like Delroy Wilson, Alton Ellis, Horace Andy, and a virtual who's-who of foundation DJs, including Dennis Alcapone, Big Youth, U Roy and I Roy. There are also numerous instrumental and dub versions (check the brilliant MELODY MAKER), and plenty examples of Hudson's own "unique" microphone technique (a somber, not-always-in-tune blues wail from the lower registers), all of which make a convincing case as to why the producer was nicknamed the Dark Prince of Reggae.

Genre : Reggae, Dub, Rocksteady, Roots Reggae, Ska, Dancehall | Cat. No.: 518 399-2 | Label: Mango

Over the course of four CDs, this is the essential musical history of the loudest island in the world, with the emphasis on essential. It starts in the time before ska, and brings it all up to the dominance of dancehall in the '90s. Along the way there's ska, rocksteady, reggae, and dub; 95 great tracks, every single one a classic. About the only major artist not represented is Lee Perry, and his productions sneak in there. Steve Barrow's notes will carry you through the story. This is about as perfect as they come, in both form and content.
