I really love the Joe Gibbs Productions from the late 70's! And here you have some fine ones.
Soul Jazz always delivers in good CD reissues, I bought this after being dissapointed by the Scorchers from the Mighty 2 double CD on VP Records. The selection is excellent but VP records have this strange thing about remastering their CDs out of phase which makes it basicly useless. Very annoying.
No such thing here though, just a good collection with great sound! Wish is had more from the Scorchers collection though*

A great compilation from the legendary Joe Gibbs.The album title (Roots, Culture,and The Birth of Dancehall)gives you a fair idea of you're going to get.That it doesn't just sound like a bunch of thrown-together tracks is down to the excellent selection by Soul Jazz Records and the fact that Joe Gibbs productions have an unmistakeable 'sound' .Clean, clear and 'muscular' are words that come to mind when trying to describe just what that 'sound' is. Whatever 'it' is, it's good to listen to.Includes at least two absolute classics (Culture's 'Two Sevens Clash' and Trinity's 'Three Piece Suit'), but everything here is top quality.Joe Gibbs releases are always good value and this is one of the very best available.
