Product Description

A deluxe four CD set gathering together a desirable selection of reggae classics from the legendary producer Niney the Observer all housed in individual wallets with fully illustrated booklet.

CD1: Dennis Brown - Deep Down is one of the rarest cultural cultural vocal albums, engineered by Errol Thompson and Phillip Smart at King Tubby’s it saw Dennis and Niney combine like match and gasoline to light a roots flame that has never gone out.

CD2: I Roy - The Observer Book of I Roy collects together the awesome run of hit singles that the late, great I Roy voiced for Niney The Observer during 1976 and 1977 are collected together here on LP for the very first time. This is foundation deejay music at its very, very best.

CD3: Heptones - Better Days from 1978 saw Naggo Morris join The Heptones and the Su Su Pon Rasta Man brought with him a heavier roots feel that was perfectly matched to the real roots vision of Niney the Observer. This already crucial set has been considerably strengthened by the addition of five in-demand roots anthems including two authorised Shaka killers!

CD4: Page One and the Observers - Observation of Life Dub, with rhythms laid down at Channel One & Harry J’s, Niney oversees a lethal drum and bass deconstruction of the Heptones “Better Days” album. This is a not to be missed set lovingly assembled for the reggae connoisseur complete with informative liner notes from reggae historian Noel Hawkes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deep Roots 24 Jan 2013
By Keith
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are into classic early roots and dub reggae then this 4cd set is a must and an absolute steal at the price I might add. The Dennis Brown disc alone is pure genuis. Each disc differs from each other and as a package the whole thing sets in stone how clean and pure early reggae and DJ mixes were before digital mixing and electronics took over...I still maintain that this kind of genre is best enjoyed loud and in the car...no better driving music can be found anywhere. I have a lot of old 70's & 80's Dub on vinyl collected over the years and have recently dipped into some of the great Trojan CD collections that are available but this box set is a class apart and I cannot reccomend it highly enough

2.0 out of 5 stars not a premier class cd 3 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
Apart from the D. Brown CD, very, very disappointing. This shows up Nineys lack of consistent quality compared to Coxsone, the Hookims and Scratch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nah 5 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Can't say I enjoyed this box set. The I Roy album is top notch but the whole as a box set just isn't up to any kind of must have criteria. the Dennis Brown album- I bought most of those tracks on cd from a local petrol station. Nuff said, sorry but I class this stuff as boring. I Roy aside.
