This is an absolutely magnificent record of eighties Brit dancehall reggae done live. Saxon were arguably the greatest British sound system ofthe 80s and on this CD you can hear why. It's all about the DJs -- in common parlance MCs -- so the backing tracks scarcely get a look in. You get fragments of famous rhythms (Armagideon etc), mainly with the bass cut and constantly spun back, so don't buy this to hear the tunes themselves. You also get massive amounts of crowd noise, which is all to the good in my opinion. But if you want to hear the apotheosis of the Brit chatting art, this is it. The biggest name on here is Tippa Irie, who gets a HUGE response, but all the MCs are on top form. If you want to know where grime (the most recent, and most MC-heavy, variant of garage) and the rest of UK rave MC culture came from, this is what you need to hear -- and it's a lot better than most yard tapes you'll buy in Brixton market. Absolutely killer, and if you want to know where jungle and breakbeat artists get a lot of their vocal samples from, you know what to do...

this is a great way to experience a sound system at work from the comfort of your home. you have to hear the saxon posse for yourself to appreciate their skill at delivering lyrics on top of a dub. papa levi is my favourite, his lyrics are the deepest in my opinion.
