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.

After just over two years the Hamburg cooking sessions are going to the next release. More than 200 acts have been staged since 2010 with the long-standing legendary cooking sessions, 40 of which are the fourth edition of Jens Pfeifer's gigs, which are organized by his own Hamburg-based kitchen, and are already well-known artists. The intimacy of the sessions is tangible with every note. Small acoustic sets, sparingly orchestrated and the result is pure and unadulterated music, produced by sound engineer and host Jens Pfeifer with the attention to detail. And so, there is also a good selection of musicians at Hamburger Küchensessions Vol. 4, which should also not be quite unknown to attentive sounds.
