I have come Trojan music late in life. Their box sets are great value for money, but somehow I didn't warm to this one. There are some good tracks but the majority do not do anything for me.

The Clash may well have given a thumbs up to it with a song on their classic London Calling LP, but there is a lot of snobbery surrounding this sugary sweet, romantic form of reggae. Ian McCann addresses some of that ill-feeling in the liner notes that accompany this 40 track double CD: “Not everyone could see the joy of lovers. If any of it ever landed on the desks of Britain’s music critics, it was trounced. There were complaints about untutored, tuneless singers, soppy lyrics and a failure to address the burning issues of the day.”

Some of the slightly slicker material on Disc 2 of this chronologically-arranged compilation, such as Boris Gardner's 1986 hit ‘You're Everything To Me’, might be grist to the mill. But there is an awful lot more selections from the genre’s late 1970s heyday, on the stronger Disc 1, that support McCann’s belief that at its best “Lovers Rock is a truly uplifting listen”, including: Ruddy Thomas’s ‘Loving Pauper’, Candy Mackenzie’s ‘Tell Me A Lie’, Marcia Aitken’s 'I’m Still In Love With You’, and Janet Kay’s ‘Loving You’.
