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.

Over the course of four CDs, this is the essential musical history of the loudest island in the world, with the emphasis on essential.

About the only major artist not represented is Lee Perry, and his productions sneak in there. Steve Barrow's notes will carry you through the story. This is about as perfect as they come, in both form and content.

Label: Kingston Sounds

Maximum iration on this latest compilation from Kingston Sounds, which shines a spotlight on the Rockers Sound (aka Steppas),whic was created during mid 70’s sessions by The Revolutionaires band at Channel 1. Drummer Sly Dunbar came up with a new ‘Militant’ style double drumming on the snare drum that seemed to add some credence to the political /Rasta based lyrics that were so prominent around this time. For this compilation, Kingston Sounds have pulled together some of the best cuts from this period when producer Bunny Lee was on the top of his game and the sound in town to get on board with was ‘Rockers’… So sit back and enjoy another period in Reggae’s history that still sounds as good as when it was created way back when… EVERYTHING ROCKERS….

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!

And so the series continues - Groovy Hammond sounds, swingin, horn sections, spacey sitars, jangling guitars, jazzy flute excursions. From the spy movie chic of The Reg Guest Syndicate to The Gabrieli Brass. Dig the mellow eastern vibe of Andy Summers & Zoot Money's 'Soma', move to the cool soul of Music Through Six. Evocative, smooth, rocking, eminently danceable and very cool.

The success of the Austin Powers movies rekindled an interest in everything groovy, swinging and mod. The Instro Hipsters a Go-Go responded in kind, serving up fun but mostly forgotten instrumentals from the '60s and early '70s that sound equally good in a bachelor pad or discotheque. Instro Hipsters a Go-Go, Vol. 2 is a Wall of Sound made up of twangy surf guitars, tumbling drums, flourishes of brass, and funky organs, exemplified by Excursion's "Switched On," St. Louis Union's "English Tea" and Zoot Money's "Zoot Suite." The Ray McVay Sound's "Revenge" and the Reg Guest Syndicate's "Underworld" sound like gritty spy movie themes, while Purple Fox's "Git Some" and Salon Band's "Disco 2" take things in a mellower direction, but the entire collection makes for very entertaining mood music that still conjures up that swinging, stylish era.

The debut Celldweller album was ground-breaking hybrid of electronic styles such as Drum'n'Bass and Psy-Trance with modern Alternative Rock and Metal. In 2013 Celldweller reissued the debut on the tenth anniversary of its release with updated artwork and a second disc of remixes, demos, and previously unheard rarities (all remastered). Now, the Instrumental edition of the reissue allows the listener to strip away Klayton's vocals and dive into the intricacies of the artist's complex musicianship.

Genre: R&B, soul

Motown Instrumentals is a vinyl rip of an album released in 1977. Different from what they did on compact disc, this is a compilation of songs released as instrumentals, songs covered for the Motown label as instrumentals, or in one case, a very bad edit of a song that has wealthy instrumental sections. This has never been formally released on compact disc or in digital form.
