4.0 out of 5 stars Great material but uneven transfers, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Disco Devil: The Jamaican Discomixes (Audio CD)
The material on here is of course some of the greatest reggae ever made. I bought many of the originals and still have them and was wondering whether to swap them for this release and cash in on the high prices they now fetch.

The quality of the transfers on this CD is variable. Sons of Slaves and History are just like the vinyl originals. Disco Devil is a different version from the 12 inch single on Black Art which has been sped up significantly spoiling the vocals and swing of the rhythm, and the sound is a bit muddy. Free the Prisoners is a bit bright and flat - the various levels of sounds and instruments seem to have a physical depth on vinyl that has not survived. Listening all the way through these cds I'd say this release is unpredictable - just like the old days. But I shan't be selling the originals after all!
