Bob Marley & The Wailers - Rastaman Vibration (1976) (Deluxe Edition)
Reggae | 2cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Tuff Gong/Island 063 446-2 | rel: 2002 | 940Mb

For Bob Marley, 1975 was a triumphant year. The singer's Natty Dread album featured one of his strongest batches of original material (the first compiled after the departure of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer) and delivered Top 40 hit "No Woman No Cry." The follow-up Live set, a document of Marley's appearance at London's Lyceum, found the singer conquering England as well. Upon completing the tour, Marley and his band returned to Jamaica, laying down the tracks for Rastaman Vibration (1976) at legendary studios run by Harry Johnson and Joe Gibbs.

Fishbone - The Best Of Fishbone (2003)
EAC | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 550 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 184 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Alternative Rock, Ska Punk, Funk Rock, Funk Metal, Reggae Rock | Label: Columbia/Legacy | # 508498 2 | Time: 01:08:17

Before No Doubt made ska suitable for new millennium pop kids, Fishbone was first to mess things up with its reggae-tinged, punk-inspired rambunctious rock sound. This Los Angeles-based six-piece spent the 1980s composing a healthy, funkdafied beat that was part metal and part pop. The college scene found the band highly amusing years later, not to mention an infectious live act, so naturally Fishbone cemented a place in what would become "alternative rock" in the decade to come. The Essential Fishbone (The Best Of) is a look back at band's rowdy rock party, a definitive selection of classics for the casual fan, but also a decent collection for Fishbone loyalists.

Dennis Brown - Wolf & Leopards (1977)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Wv + Cue + Log | covers
VP MUsic VPCD2333-2 | rel: 2006 | 250Mb

Although Dennis Brown released over a hundred albums during his career, Wolf & Leopards, which appeared in 1977, might be the most significant for a couple of different reasons, even though it was essentially a collection of singles. It was the first LP from Brown to feature the singer as a full-fledged Rastaman, and the songs show a strong commitment to cultural themes. It also introduced to the world his signature song, "Here I Come" (aka "Love and Hate"), as well as the title tune, "Wolf & Leopards," which is rumored to have been mixed by Lee "Scratch" Perry at his Black Ark studio. Several of the tracks were produced by Niney, with the rest produced by Brown himself with help from singer Castro Brown, but even with its sort of little bit here, little bit there haphazard makeup, Wolf & Leopards functions as a fully integrated and coherent album sequence.

Desmond Dekker - Greatest Hits
EAC+LOG+CUE | FLAC: 136 MB | Full Artwork | 5% Recovery Info
Label/Cat#: Evergreen # 2690552 CD | Country/Year: Germany 198_
Genre: Reggae | Style: Reggae, Ska, Oldies

"Probably no other Jamaican artist has brought more international acclaim to his island home than Desmond Dekker, barring, of course, Bob Marley, but Dekker came first. Most people's introduction to the island's unique musical sound came via the singer's many hits, most notably "Israelites" and "0.0.7. (Shanty Town)." Needless to say, he was even more influential in his homeland...." ~AMG

The Excelsiors - Control This (2014)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Tracks: 11 | 43:08 min | 106 Mb
Style: R&B, Soul, Pop, Reggae, Funk | Label: BBE

Sounding quite like nothing you have heard before, The Excelsiors come correct with their debut album, Control This. The latest project fromShane ‘Sureshot’ Hunt, known for his Sharpshooters group, and for his highly-regarded Soundbwoy Reggae Breaks series wherein he has liberally dropped science, sharing his in-depth knowledge of ska, rock-steady, reggae and dancehall for the instruction of the hip-hop massive, The Excelsiors is the logical extension of Shane’s passion for classic Jamaican music (and more) of the ‘60s through ‘80s.

Black Uhuru - Red (1981)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Wv + Cue + Log | covers
Mango CCD 9625 | rel: 1988 | 260Mb

The sophomore release from the third and most successful incarnation of Black Uhuru (singers Don Carlos, Erroll "Jay" Wilson, and Rudolph "Garth" Dennis had come before), Red spotlights the singing talents of then rising star Michael Rose, American-born Sandra "Puma" Jones, and original member Derrick "Duckie" Simpson. Backed by the tight and dancehall-era defining Sly & Robbie band, the trio reels off eight high-quality reggae cuts here, including classics like "Youth of Eglington" and "Sponji Reggae." Filled with Rose's astute lyrics, the album provides an engaging blend of steppers rhythms and social commentary.

Bunny Lee Presents The Late Great King Tubby - The Legacy (2006)
Reggae | 4cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Jet Star UNITYCD0722 | rel: 2006 | 1970Mb

Bunny Lee and King Tubby are synonymous with Dub Reggae. Bunny Lee may not have been the first producer for whom Tubby remixed, but theirs was certainly the most fruitful partnership, with literally hundreds of singles released in the mid to late 70's. This compilation has the edge for me over other compilations featuring Bunny Lee/King Tubby material (like the 3-CD "Father Of Dub" boxset), because within it are four complete original seventies albums. True, the tracklistings are scattered about a bit, but with a little research you can compile the LPs "The Roots Of Dub", "Dub From The Roots" (both on CD 1), "Cookin" by Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators (12 tracks on CD 2) and "Showcase Vol.3" by Jackie Mittoo (first 10 tracks on CD 3). The rest adds up to another 2CDs worth of assorted tracks - great value.

Sean Paul - Full Frequency (2014)
Dancehall | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
VP/Atlantic 7567868383 | rel: 2014 | 390Mb

While his 2012 effort Tomahawk Technique recast dancehall singer Sean Paul as Jamaica's leading EDM artist, 2014's Full Frequency injects some hip-hop and Marley back into the mix, and all for the better. The Marley happens to be Bob's son "Junior Gong" Damian, a wise choice for some raw mashing it up and reclaiming reggae cred; cred which is certainly earned during their opening collaboration "Riot," a worthy "Welcome to Jamrock"-styled number with a trap music break in the middle and some infectious, streetwise spirit. Equally infectious is "Wickedest Style," where Paul offers a woozy, cloud rap-inspired follow-up to "Gimme the Light," with special guest Iggy Azalea rapping in some faux Jamaican patois ("Boy, what a gwan cuz you push pon my waist"), then there's Prince Royce winding it up with Paul on the twerpy and twerking highlight "Dangerous Ground," while dancehall singer Konshens joins for the bright, party starter "Want Dem All," an electro, "everyone in the pool!" number if ever there was one.

King Tubby meets Roots Radics - Dangerous Dub (1981)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Greensleeves GREWCD229 | rel: 2001 | 295Mb

A collaboration between dub mixmaster/studio whiz King Tubby and dancehall tough Jah Screw, Dangerous Dub is a ten-track collection of some of the heaviest roots dub around. The two spent nights mixing tracks in King Tubby's studio located in the perilous, crime-rife ghetto of West Kingston -- hence the name Dangerous Dub. Pounding, mind-blowing basslines and supple guitar tracks are provided by studio mainstays Flabba Holt and Bingy Bunny, both of whom appear on countless reggae and dub recordings. They provide a nice balance to the rat-a-tat ratcheting sounds King Tubby is famous for. The best cut by far is "Hungry Belly Dub," a remake of the classic reggae standard "Bandulo." Also featuring the track "London Bridge Special," Dangerous Dub is a great introduction to dub at its finest. ~Allmusic
