Reggae Blitz

 

Various Artists - Reggae Blitz All Stars - Music Blitz - CD

A newcomer to the reggae business - Music Blitz have got off to a tremendous start with this sampler. Reggae Blitz is a 16 track set featuring a cross selection of some of the biggest names in reggae music over the last 30 years or so. The really good thing is that someone as tried to match up the production with the artists. What works very well for Maxi Priest would not work well for Yellowman for example. Featured artists are; Andrew Tosh, Third World, Big Mountain, Black Uhuru, Bob Marley, Gregory Isaacs, Junior Reid, Mighty Diamonds, Michael Rose, Pato Banton, Yellowman, Toots, Maxi Priest, Shabba Ranks, Wailing Souls. Every single artist produces something good, really good or excellent. Very difficult to pick a favourite track - but Junior Reid's semi acoustic 'What If' featuring Big Youth is something special.
