Being of suburban pennsylvania descent, of course I came into an interest in reggae from an indierock angle...Fugazi's "Red Medicine" blew my mind, and not only opened my ears to the mesmerization the bass/drum reggae rhythm section can provide, but made me want to dig to find out where in the hell they were getting their ideas. 7 yrs later, reggae/dub/dj/dancehall, etc. is still one of the few genres that delivers that butterflies-in-the-stomach sense of discovery that any record collector nerd feels when doors are first opened to a new style that amazes them and the subsequent endless possibility of unknown doors that could be lurking on any dusty record. i've only got a modest collection and an even more modest knowledge, but these 2 discs are a starter kit of personal favorites trying not to include multiple entries. as is probably obvious, i'm particularly partial to that deep roots sound of the mid-to-late '70s. Title comes from the Black Uhuru song, one of the best four minutes ever grooved into vinyl.

Aww shit, these two cds are irie as hell. Nicely done, reggae done proper. These two cds are crucial, especially if you dont know about reggae. Educate yourselves properly.

this looks great--it seems to lack that faux hippie obnoxiousness that seems to pervade campuses throughout the nation...
