Essential? I think not, mabe useful if you have no reggae in your music collection

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.
