Aston 'Family Man' Barrett is much more than just one of the most renowned reggae bass players of all time. As the bassist of choice for Bob Marley and the Wailers from 1969 up until Marley's untimely passing, Barrett acted as chief musical arranger and bandleader for the Wailers, greatly altering the course of reggae in the process. He has also been one of the most important Jamaican session musicians, beginning with the Hippie Boys in the late 1960s, and after helping reggae to become better established internationally as a member of Lee 'Scratch' Perry's Upsetters band, he also performed bass duties for a range of noteworthy producers, including Bunny Lee and Keith Hudson, among many others.

Reggae / Dub

Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare are simply known all around the world as Sly & Robbie, the Rhythm Twins. Providing the drum and bass backbone for reggae since the early 1970’s (Dunbar on Dave and Ansell Collins album 'Double Barrel', Shakespeare as a member of the Hippy Boys), the pair have played on more records than any other set of Jamaican musicians. Needless to say, as this is a Jamaican Recordings release, the name Bunny ’Striker’ Lee can't be far away, and it turns out that the duo first worked together in Lee's house band the Aggrovators.

Reggae / Dub

There's a heady brew of talent going on here – Phillip Smart at the mixing deck, The Aggrovators providing the rhythms, and Bunny Lee mixing the whole thing down at King Tubby's – all for a massive serving of echo-heavy Jamaican dub from the 70s! The tracks here are awash in cool instrumental touches – lots of organ lines from Jackie Mittoo and Winston Wright, bubbling basslines from Robbie Shakespeare and Aston Barrett, and sweet riffing guitar from Chinna Smith and Alva Lewis – but the special focus here is on the way that Smart can capture all these sounds individually, with a crispness that points the way towards the digital dub generation, and which gives a really deep sense of texture to the final dubs. CD features four more bonus tracks too!

VA - Trojan: A Jamaican Story Box Set (2001)

VA - Trojan: A Jamaican Story Box Set (2001)
Roots Reggae / Early Reggae / Jamaica Ska / Dub | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 3,71 Gb
Label: Trojan Records | Release Year: 2001

This whopping 30-CD box set gathers together the best of Trojan's three-disc box set series. Included are the Ska, DJ, Dub, Instrumentals, Jamaican Superstars, Lovers, Producer Series, Rocksteady, Roots, and Tribute to Bob Marley volumes, each of which can be found under Trojan Box Set for their individual reviews. What's lacking here is a booklet with additional notes and information; the bulk seems to demand some extra coverage and care, yet all that's here are the original notes of each volume – only as much text as can fit on the back of the CD sleeves. From a music standpoint, however, this box is excellent; a truly diverse and comprehensive collection. Of the 500 songs, less than ten reappear on another volume, so you get a more-than-satisfying amount of music spanning the history of the Trojan label.

Stephen Steinbrink has always taken after singer-songwriters whose production choices were just as iconic and definitive as their voices. His own songs have made themselves comfortable in the three studios Steinbrink has worked in the last half a decade; a tiny converted garage in Olympia, WA, the sonically massive Unknown in Anacortes, WA, and newly christened Container Studio in Oakland, CA. This collection of rarities captures every facet of Steinbrink’s production prowess explored in the last five years, from the meekly charming to the impressively expansive.
