David Rodigan is known mainly as the champion of Reggae but this CD goes through loads of genres which just show his complete knowledge of music. Any album that can kick off with The Kinks & have various artists in-between like Etta James, The Small Faces, Desmond Dekker & also reggae greats like Freddie McGregor, Tarrus Riley, Lee Scratch Perry. This cd also has Amy Winehouse covering a Specials track. Also this has one of the best tracks of last year Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra featuring Bitty Mclean singing Fu Man Chu.
You do not only need to like reggae to enjoy this. This is a must for all proper/ real music fans.

There is nothing wrong with the music.

HOWEVER if you are buying the vinyl version, beware, it is not the cd version spread over 6lp's but is actually 6x 7" singles featuring 12 tracks from the cd version.

The singles are:


Alton Ellis - Black Mans Pride
Bob Andy - Life


Brent Dove - When The Sun Goes
Cornell Campbell - Harry Hippy


Bessie Banks - Go Now
The Yardbirds _ For Your Love


Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra - Fu Man Chu
Lloyd Charmers - Colour Him Father


Marcia Griffiths - Stepping Out Of Babylon
Johnny Osbourne & The Sensations - See and Blind


Busy Signal - Modern Day Slavery
King Tubby & Johnny Clarke - Knock Out Punch

4.0 out of 5 stars stirring stuff, read on 6 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an Intetesting treble cd set for the reggae fan with some oddities thrown in, it's worth the money just for the astonishing find of the " Paul scubi smith" track " word smith" . Wow, pay for the cd just for this, just as you think there's nothing new and exiting in reggae this appears . Also Ini kamozoe track - England be nice is mind stirring stuff, some real gems in the mix for your collection .

5.0 out of 5 stars Ho! Waaaaaaah "David Rodigaaaaan" 15 Mar 2014
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Important collection that consists of Ram Jam's faves.... Don't expect back to back dancehall as this is not what Rodigan aimed for.
This is a refection of the records David loves and from the artists he admires.

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 : )
