BBC Review

If this doesn't get soul musos salivating, nothing will. Soul II Soul's legendary Jazzie B may come across arrogant by labelling his latest mixed compilation 'Masterpiece', but after just one spin you can't really argue. Three discs take the listener on a journey through the life, vibes and times of a true British music stalwart.

On disc one, Jazzie reaches out to his early inspiration: timeless, old skool soul- the music that kick-started the Soul II Soul party soundsystem, years before Back To Life and Keep On Moving were released. Among twelve unpretentious, feel-good soul tracks, you'll find classics like Creative Source's Good Loving Is Good Living, Harold Mervin & The Blue Notes' Bad Luck and Mystic Merlin's Mr Magician. And, yes, the latter is as gorgeously cheesy as you imagine; disco shoes, the whole shebang.

Kicking off with James Brown, disc two glides through funk and rare groove (Cameo, Kool & The Gang, The Commodores) as Jazzie evokes the hazy days of London's Africa Centre. This Covent Garden venue was where Soul II Soul ruled roost in the late eighties with their eclectic, diehard, Benetton-esque fans.

Last but by no means least, disc three completes the trilogy with an uplifting electronic versus hip hop trip. Nitro Deluxe opens with 1986 club classic, The Brutal House and Jazzie B himself ends with 2008's tribal-influenced escapade alongside the infamous Copywrite crew, Roots. In between you'll find gems like Raze's Break 4 Love, Slick Rick's Children's Story and Cypress Hill's How I Could Just Kill A Man.

An absolute must-have for any discerning soulful music lover. --Elle J Small

This review probably falls in between the other 2 reviews. Back in the 80s, I was a big fan of the rare groove/hip hop/house scene, which predated the 1988 Summer of Love, when of course, everything changed! Over the years, I've been picking up as many of the tracks I missed from around that time and of course Soul II Soul were massive on that scene then. The Africa Centre CD covers a big chunk and this CD fills in a lot of gaps. Every era covered on the 3 CDs is spot on, with good track selection and I've managed to get hold of 3-4 tracks I've been missing for over 20 years! Jazzie's show on Fridays on BBC London is a fantastic catch as well, bringing back memories of London pirate shows from many moons ago! Overall, for the price and the quality of songs included, I surmise that this CD is fantastic value!

Jazzie B has been a part of the black music scene in the United Kingdom (UK) for very many years, and is respected for playing his part in promulgating the experiences of the Jamaican sound system to a far wider audience - something which he refers to in the notes accompanying this release as having been a conscious decision to be 'inclusive' and not 'exclusive'. He is also widely recognised as being the figurative head of 'Soul II Soul', over seeing the transition from a DJ based sound system to recording artist to (however briefly) the encapsulation of a black musical experience of which the mainstream had been largely unaware.

This story has been visited previously in other musical collections which are still available, but this release offers itself as THE history lesson of how Soul II Soul moved from the "community centres of North London...to some of the most pretigious and influential clubs in the world", and does so with an apparent awareness that such narratives can be rewritten or reframed, often by those not originally involved in the making of the story. To help with this framing the collection is divided in to three parts - 'Pre Africa Centre', 'Africa Centre/Rare Groove' and finally 'Africa Centre/ The Fridge' - each drawing upon the experiences of the 'places and spaces' of seminal importance to the soundsystem collective.

But what about the music? For a collection to present (however imperfectly) nearly thirty years of music linked to Soul II Soul is quite an undertaking, but this collection does generally manage to present a coherent overview of what you might have heard being played during this period, including some records now considered to be 'classics' of their genre.

A fantastic mix CD, fans of the Norman Jay 'Good Times' series will love this...a mixture of styles represented from rare groove to house to soul. I cannot praise this enough and would recommend this to any true dance music fan, in addition to this, check out Jazzie's live mix compilation 'Live At The Africa Centre'

Really like this mix has a huge variety of music mixing hip hop with dance and funk. Plenty to choose from and works well. Not the best produced album or mixing by Jazzie B but he's not really a DJ more an artist, but still worth the purchase and will get lots of plays. Nice to have in your collection - really rate this series - Nice Work Mr B.
