Reggae Discomix Showcase, Vol. 3

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The final disc in this three-volume series of discomix singles continues to make a solid case for the genius of production team Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson, "the Mighty Two" of reggae legend. Working with such sterling studio ensembles as the Revolutionaries, the Soul Syndicate, and the Aggrovators, the duo welcomed a veritable parade of A-list reggae singers and DJs (or rappers) into their studio, churning out hit after hit and often creating extended mixes for use in the open-air sound system dances of 1970s Kingston. These versions started out with the regular vocal version of the song, but then segued directly into a remixed dub version, usually with a DJ rapping or ...

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The final disc in this three-volume series of discomix singles continues to make a solid case for the genius of production team Joe Gibbs and Errol Thompson, "the Mighty Two" of reggae legend. Working with such sterling studio ensembles as the Revolutionaries, the Soul Syndicate, and the Aggrovators, the duo welcomed a veritable parade of A-list reggae singers and DJs (or rappers) into their studio, churning out hit after hit and often creating extended mixes for use in the open-air sound system dances of 1970s Kingston. These versions started out with the regular vocal version of the song, but then segued directly into a remixed dub version, usually with a DJ rapping or "toasting" over the top. As the previous two volumes do, this one presents 11 examples of Gibbs/Thompson discomix magic, showcasing the work of singers Marcia Aitken (at the top of her game on "I'm Not a Queen"), Cornel Campbell (paired with the obscure but brilliant DJ Lee Van Cliff on the excellent "Boxing Around/Look How She Fat"), and the underappreciated George Nooks ("Sadie"). One of the album's best tracks features Freddie McGregor, one of the best pure singers in reggae history, who is teamed up with the talented DJ Shorty the President on "First Sight Loving/Hugging and Kissing." All three volumes should be considered essential additions to any roots reggae collection.
