Format: Audio CD
This CD reissue of I Roy's 1976 album "Crisus Time" is quite confusingly presented. The original artwork has been replaced by a lazy reproduction of the same photo from I Roy's "Musical Shark Attack"; but the most mystifying aspect is the inclusion of six bonus tracks that feature at the start of the disc. I'm used to bonus tracks tacked on to the end of albums, and in some cases peppered throughout the track listing; but at least these 'bonuses' tend to have some sort of relevant connection to the original material. The bonus tracks on this CD are not connected to the original album at all. Recorded at later dates by different producers - three tracks from 1977's "Heart Of A Lion", and three from the 1980 set "Whap'n Bap'n" - the tracks seem a little unnecessary and intrusive,especially at the start of the CD; and the lacklustre booklet notes make no effort to explain their inclusion here at all.

The remaining 12 tracks (numbers 7 to 18) make up the "Crisus Time" album; an exemplary collection of roots reggae which showcases the legendary Jamaican deejay (a vocal style which would be called rapping nowadays) at the height of his powers in 1976. I Roy masterfully combines fast and fluid chanted rhymes; jive talk; and powerful stream-of-consciousness reasoning in that wonderful husky howl of his, often punctuated with startling yelps. Though always informed by his devout Rastafarian faith, I-Roy's lyrics are pleasingly varied and contain lots of light-hearted, humorous touches amidst the typical "dread" proclamations of judgement.

Most of the lyrics on the album juxtapose the 'serious' subject matter with the whimsical.

Bit dull really. 3 good tracks, rest uninteresting. Better stuff around.

Best several reggae albums I have bought or re-bought on CD are:

Tapper Zukie - MPLA
Tapper Zukie - Peace in the Ghetto
Culture - 2 Sevens Clash
Various - Original Foundation Deejays
Dillinger - Ultimate Collection
Maytals - 20 Massive Hits
URoy - Jah Son of Africa
