Format: Audio CD
Lover's Rock is something of the poor relation of Reggae music. Whilst the likes of Dub, Roots, Ska, Dancehall, and just about every other genre has considerable kudos with collectors and music lovers, Lover's Rock is probably best described as the musical equivilant of the genre's version of Easy Listening. Whilst that may be the case, it's also true to say that this is one of Reggae's most durable sub-genres.

Trojan have linked with Island records to plunder a wider back catalogue for their recent reissue series giving their current releases (each representing one specific genre) the chance for buyers to chart the history of Jamaican music from its beginnings through its key developments. This compilation covers one of the widest date ranges beginning in 1976 and finishing with a song recorded in 1990. Its cast list is almost as broad and impressive as the timespan it covers.

Essentially Lover's Rock is music for lovers. It's lighter in touch, more soulful, and contains nothing of the politics, bravado, sonic boundary testing, or innovation that any of the other genres it spans. This is about songs and melody, pure and simple. One key ingredient is the fact that it relies heavily on taking songs of the day and giving them a Reggae makeover. At its worst it can be rather tame and almost bland, at its best it matches, even betters its source material, and is good as the best pop music of the day. It was a time when even the biggest stars could be tempted into cutting a track which would have a lighter more radio friendly appeal. So the likes of Freddie McGregor, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Keith Rowe, and Matumbi all may have had a reputation built outside the genre but they are found here.

Fantastic collection of Lovers Rock. I have found it very hard to get past the first 7 tracks on CD 1 and in fact am constantly repeating the J sisters and Elizabeth Archers tracks (tracks 6 & 7). I think these two tunes some up the best lovers, sounding slightly out of tune, wonderful. I am actually trying to locate them on vinyl which appears to be easier said than done.
