David Rodigan is known mainly as the champion of Reggae but this CD goes through loads of genres which just show his complete knowledge of music. Any album that can kick off with The Kinks & have various artists in-between like Etta James, The Small Faces, Desmond Dekker & also reggae greats like Freddie McGregor, Tarrus Riley, Lee Scratch Perry. This cd also has Amy Winehouse covering a Specials track. Also this has one of the best tracks of last year Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra featuring Bitty Mclean singing Fu Man Chu.
You do not only need to like reggae to enjoy this. This is a must for all proper/ real music fans.

Important collection that consists of Ram Jam's faves.... Don't expect back to back dancehall as this is not what Rodigan aimed for.
This is a refection of the records David loves and from the artists he admires.

This is an Intetesting treble cd set for the reggae fan with some oddities thrown in, it's worth the money just for the astonishing find of the " Paul scubi smith" track " word smith" . Wow, pay for the cd just for this, just as you think there's nothing new and exiting in reggae this appears . Also Ini kamozoe track - England be nice is mind stirring stuff, some real gems in the mix for your collection .

Old, obscure songs ... not bad exactly, but I was hoping for better. There are a couple of well known songs early on, but those are the exception: a lot of this is rather obscure for good reason! But if that's what you want, you might enjoy this 3 CD set.

This review is for David Rodigan's 'Masterpiece' collection in the vinyl format (NOT the cd)

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 : )
