Format: Audio CD
Summer is here and what better to listen to than some reggae when you're having your barbecue. I don't know why but I always think of jazz when the nights are hot and steamy, and reggae for barbecues as background music. This double cd album contains 42 of some great reggae commercial hits and anthems. Listen to that fat bass beat and put the barbie on, and open up a can. If you like reggae you can't really go wrong with this album.

Recommend this CD to any1 & every1, I love it so much I have it playing when I'm using my laptop, which is quite a lot of the time. It's really varied in types of reggae, i.e. Dawn Penn, 'You don't love me (no no no), to Byron Lee & the Dragonaires, 'Cherry oh Baby'. Well worth the money. This CD is also great to do the housework to!

Yeah, I was seriously underwhelmed by this compilation. The reviews made it sound like it was going to deliver. It does not. Yes, I had a number of the better tracks already on albums or other compilations. I hoped some of the tracks I had not previously heard would be quality. They are not. Reggae is not homogenous and a good compilation requires crafting to put together style and delivery. This CD seems a random putting together of rough, smooth, well known and rare non-entities. So it is annoying to listen to through in its entirety and only found one track, the first to put on the iPod. Be warned, these are only 42 reggae classics in the brain of whoever put this together.

For me a must have obviously some of the tracks are on other albums but others aren't and it is worth the cost for these tracks, in particular "My Girl Josephine" a favourite of mine.
