This album is way cool. | California, USA | 11/28/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Anyone who enjoys the reggae music of the 70's will really enjoy this one. These songs recorded in Jamaica 1971-1974 are great reminders of the music being played back home, back then."
Great early 70's reggae

"This disc has now been re-released as "O Reggae Where Art Thou".I have not heard that disc yet,but if "Reggae Classics" is available,I'd buy it immediately,as it's much cheaper.The songs are very good early 70's reggae:they are more in the reggae pop mode than the roots mode,but great fun nonetheless.While the songs are more pop than roots,they are high quality songs,including the novelty songs by Pluto. Some of the groups and singers are well known,(i.e.,Ken Boothe,Maytones,)while some of the others are obscure,(i.e.,Sang Hugh).But all make very listenable contributions and I particularly liked Sang Hugh's(aka Keith Morgan)song.As to the sound,it is very good for it's age.According to the liner notes,about half the songs are mono and half are stereo.But,all are clear and sound good.If your taste runs to catchy early reggae you will be pleasantly surprised at the quality of this disc.Buy it soon,especially at the cheap price that is listed when I wrote this."
