This review is for David Rodigan's 'Masterpiece' collection in the vinyl format (NOT the cd)
These have to be the finest quality 7" discs I have ever played, in my humble opinion.
The singles are uniquely packaged and you even get your very own 'middle' emblazoned with his signature, along with a well presented 'music history' lesson booklet (ie the history of the tracks contained on the singles).
All of the singles contain special recordings but my favourite (at the moment) is the sublime Bob Andy's 'Life' - it is an absolutely gorgeous song with a very special vocal performance.
I would encourage anyone to give 'Masterpiece' a try, if only to enjoy/ experience a different world view, and a unique perspective on life, through song.
If you are a collector and you already possess these recordings then such is the quality of this product that they are worth buying again; personally, I already have several copies of Marcia's tune - but this cut is able to bring a fresh insight into her recording.
Lastly, to my ears vinyl possesses a quality that only the outrageously expensive cd players can begin to approach, but I guess you can always buy the cd as well, particularly if you yearn for the extra tracks contained on the cd... in fact I'm considering that option myself : )
