Legendary DJ brothers, Norman and Joey Jay have been brewing an alternative roadblock at the Notting Hill Carnival since 1980. Sound controllers for the Good Times sound system, this fantastic compilation of up-tempo dance music demonstrates why the Jays are hugely influential DJs. Every song is an anthem. Deep, smooth and sinuous, Good Times crosses soul, reggae, hip hop, funk, disco and house perfectly evoking the hazy afternoon feel that is "carnival". You could be standing on the street, reggae-skanking to the gentle lilt of John Holt's "Ali Baba" one minute and jumping up crazily to KRS 1's "Sound of Da Police" the next. Good Times is so good because quality is Norman and Joey's chief concern, as they endearingly refuse to bow down to the whims of the latest club craze. The first CD begins appropriately with Chic's simple and festive disco stomper, "Open Up", swiftly following it up with a stack of bump'n'hustle gems including the super soul of Marcia Griffiths' "Feel Like Jumping" and the devotional groove of "Spread Love." CD 2 captures the multi-hued experience of loved-up early house clubs with gleeful vocal cuts from BeBeWinans ("Thank You"), Loose Ends ("Hanging On a String") and Nu Colours ("Greater Love"). Elsewhere, James Brown throws you right into his growling funk classic, "Stone To The Bone" and Marlena Shaw seduces you with the glorious "Californian Soul". Never less than explosive, Good Times has only your best party minded interests at heart. --Maxine Kabuubi

5.0 out of 5 stars The best - as you'd expect. 30 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
Wow, this is a fantastic compilation. I've just spent two days at the Good times sound system this carnival, and the CD really captures the feeling of the event. You would expect nothing but the best from Norman and Joey Jay and this is what you get. There's no need to comment on individual tracks - they are all great, you'll love them whether you've been with good times for 20 years or even if you've never heard of it. The sleave notes also deserve a special mention as they provide a fantastic read covering all the history of the Good time sound system.

Heard one track in HMV and bought it (Amazon is cheaper) The MAW Mix of Thank You by BeBe Winans track one on CD2 is worth the price of the CD on its own. Mission Impossible from Byron Lee and the Dragonaires(from the TV show) and Summertime from MSFB added to the other great tracks make it an out and out winner. Notting Hill relived, Great (and I'm over sixty ! ) Buy it now and turn up the volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gentle people party 28 Feb 2001
By Jack
Format:Audio CD
"Good Times" definitely lies at the softer end of the dance spectrum, where the soul genius of Stevie Wonder and Chic resides. A sprinkling of reggae, rap and early house make this a very tasty mix for your own block party.
