HOWEVER if you are buying the vinyl version, beware, it is not the cd version spread over 6lp's but is actually 6x 7" singles featuring 12 tracks from the cd version.
The singles are:
Alton Ellis - Black Mans Pride
Bob Andy - Life
Brent Dove - When The Sun Goes
Cornell Campbell - Harry Hippy
Bessie Banks - Go Now
The Yardbirds _ For Your Love
Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra - Fu Man Chu
Lloyd Charmers - Colour Him Father
Marcia Griffiths - Stepping Out Of Babylon
Johnny Osbourne & The Sensations - See and Blind
Busy Signal - Modern Day Slavery
King Tubby & Johnny Clarke - Knock Out Punch
You do not only need to like reggae to enjoy this. This is a must for all proper/ real music fans.
This is a refection of the records David loves and from the artists he admires.
These have to be the finest quality 7" discs I have ever played, in my humble opinion.
The singles are uniquely packaged and you even get your very own 'middle' emblazoned with his signature, along with a well presented 'music history' lesson booklet (ie the history of the tracks contained on the singles).
All of the singles contain special recordings but my favourite (at the moment) is the sublime Bob Andy's 'Life' - it is an absolutely gorgeous song with a very special vocal performance.
I would encourage anyone to give 'Masterpiece' a try, if only to enjoy/ experience a different world view, and a unique perspective on life, through song.
If you are a collector and you already possess these recordings then such is the quality of this product that they are worth buying again; personally, I already have several copies of Marcia's tune - but this cut is able to bring a fresh insight into her recording.
Lastly, to my ears vinyl possesses a quality that only the outrageously expensive cd players can begin to approach, but I guess you can always buy the cd as well, particularly if you yearn for the extra tracks contained on the cd... in fact I'm considering that option myself : )
