If you've been a collector of Trojan's seemingly inexhaustible flow of box sets, you'll know the quality can go down as well as up - the Dub and Tighten Up sets great, the Rare Groove and Rastafarian ones not so hot. This Roots box set, I'm delighted to report, is fantastic and the best I've bought so far. Focusing on the golden age (in my opinion!)of reggae - 1970-1980 - this set features Roots at its finest; from the honeyed harmonies of the Heptones and the Mighty Diamonds to the trench-deep basslines underpinning the likes of Mr Bojangles' 'Ten Dread Commandments' and Big Youth's 'Dread Is Best'. Any dread revelations? Well, Ras Michael and The Sons Of Negus contribute three stunning tracks studded with Nyahbinghi drumming, while the New Town Sound's stupendous 'I And I Are The Chosen One' - no, that's not an earthquake, it's the speaker-shredding bass - will leave you a quivering, beautiful mess. Jah Rastafari? With bells on, brethren...

Being a footy fan good ska, rocksteady and general forms of reggae are vital to my Saturday and this Roots compilation from Trojan pure hits the spot! Roundabout track 5 on the first CD you'll be aching for some herbal relief to enhance your music pleasures even more. By this stage you'll already heard the exceptional "Cool Rasta," "Rise in the Strength Jah," and "Rise Jah Jah Children." Just when you thought it couldn't get any better up pops "History" by Carlton Jackson, my speakers clearly aren't big enough!
The whole mood is one of mellow enlightenment; with the musical arrangements so clear you can almost touch the sandy beaches and clear blue skies of warmer climes. I can't believe some of these tracks are older than me!!!
To be honest I would pay this price for just one CD let alone 3!
Buy this and refuse to get distressed otherwise 'tings will go missing, Jah bless!

If you have been a long term roots reggae fan like me, you will know the vast array of material available in the market place doesn't always match the billing. This box set however, does exactly what it says on the tin and more.
If you like your reggae crackly and rare, this is the one for you. New Town Sound limited steal the show with the bassiest, gruffest tune you will ever hear, however, most tracks on each of the 3 cds are classic rarities.
Buy it, and don't look back, this is the real deal for those like the revival style.
