Great stuff..... from 1st to last......,
This review is from: Tribulation: Down in Jamdown 1974-1979 (Audio CD)
Pretty harsh comments by the first reviewer of this CD. Yes, alot of this stuff has been reissued before but those issues are long deleted so how is a newcomer going to get his hands on this material? This CD that's how and as usual with Pressure Sounds it is packaged beautifully with great sound quality, which should always be the primary consideration of reggae reissues since I'd heard more than a few dogs in my time on lesser labels. The music is peerless, great rhythms and great singing and some interesting dub-sides, from first to last without a single dud track and there aren't too many CDs you can say that about. After the awful "Rockstone" CD I was worried that Pressure Sounds were going the way of the now sadly defunct 'Blood & Fire' reggae reissue label but this CD has definitely restored the faith and I've just heard they are about to re-release the greatest single artist reggae album of them all, Joe Higgs' "Life Of Contradiction".........
