Format: Audio CD
Excellent compilation from the DJ's behind DBC. DBC was the cult
station broadcasting a mix of reggae, soul, soca, hip hop, dub from West London. This compilation includes some of the DBC jingles interspersed. Lepke (Leroy Anderson) and sister Miss P , Dr Watts, Mike Williams (Mike da Bike), Chuckie and others were a fantastic team. This comp., is the tip of the iceberg - but its a good start. The first disc is more lively dancehall style, the second disk is more laid back rocksteady/ska inspired. A good starter album for a reggae beginner, afficionados will probably have a lot of these tracks already.
For those of you, who like me listended (and still listen to my DBC tapes) - the sleeve notes give an excellent history and background of this legendary station - worth buying for the notes alone. DBC was run by people who cared more about the music than profit, this came across in the relaxed style of the station..there were very few comemrcials..the ones they did have were just read out or sung by the dj's...come back DBC!!!

Though I have most of the music in my collection, it was worth the money to hear the old DBC jingles. Rebel radio provided a service to the community that should always be remembered. If you haven't got an extensive collection, this is a good place to start. If you have, buy it for the memories.

On this double CD you get the jingles often used and some of these are good enough to have been made into full records (or to sample?).Best jingle is 'We're Hot' by Ranking Miss P and Big Youth. Does anyone know if a full single was made of this?
The stuff featured here ranges from 1959 to 1982 with most of it 1969 to 1979 so you are getting the classic period here.
Some of my favourites on this are 'Warrior Charge' Aswad, 'Politician' Barry Brown, 'Declaration of Rights'Johnny Clarke with the organ riff pinched so many times, 'Bam,Bam' Sister Nancy,'Rub a dub Soldier' Paul Blake.
I've not heard it enough yet so there will be others that get better with a few more plays.
Not a bad mix of styles, jingles a nice addition, not outstanding hence the 3 star rating. For the money - good value!
