CD Reviews

This is what we've all been waiting for!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Direct to us from the roots of reggae comes this testament to the legendary producer who is largely responsible for the sound that now defines early reggae. Big Youth, The Heptones, Justin Hines and the Dominoes, and the now imortal Burning Spear are all represented, along with many others, as a snapshot of Jack Ruby's early endevors. The music is so good it hurts... oh but it hurts so good. Anyone with even a remote interest in reggae or the therapudic grooves of the islands, this is an album not to miss."

"JACK RUBY PRODUCED STELLAR ROOTS MUSIC FROM THE MID-SEVENTIES. THIS CD IS NON-STOP, CLASSIC AFTER CLASSIC WITH SOME RELATIVE UNKNOWNS COMING TO THE FRONT WITH DEEP, DEEP ROOTS. FOR ME THE STANDOUTS ARE THE INSTRUMENTALS, ESPECIALLY THE MONSTEROUS REWORKING OF "ROCKFORT ROCK" CLOCKING AT OVER 8 MINUTES. THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY REGGAE REISSUES IN THE PAST TEN YEARS AND THIS ONE IS IN MY TOP TEN EASILY. THE DUB COMPANION SET IS WORTHY ALSO, BUT NO WHERE NEAR AS ESSENTIAL AS THIS RELEASE."
