CD Reviews

Not like the original LP...
Jon E. Thornton | Los Angeles, CA. USA | 12/19/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Although it is nice to finally see this released on cd, be forewarned. The original 8 songs that were on the LP are all edited versions. They fade out before the serious dub kicks in that concluded each track. That aside, you get additional tunes that were not on the original that all appear to be from the early 80's."
Still good value

"no this is not the original version released in the eighties with extended versions of all of the tracks. (believe me i miss the original "ballroom floor" and "another dance") but shortened mixes complemented by the "dance massive" album and as such and in lieu of the original being rereleased it will do. my only reservation is that at sixty minutes the extended cuts could easily be fitted on. and as bunny's dnace hall album why is "dancehall music" not included. no not the original but still towers head and shoulders above todays dance hall music.as the man himself says "i and i come fe rule dance hall"."
Not the original

"I am mystified.

This is simply not the original album, as the linear notes claim, but a complete reworking of the original, with songs unidentified in era (they sound like contemporary Bunny to me).
Some very strange choices have been made--ballroom floor is introduced by a toasting Bunny Wailer--and the original trance mood that made the original so special is missing. The overall effect is jarring and disappointing.

This could have been such a special release and feels vaguely like an exploitation.
