Deze dubbel elpee is er een die ik vanaf de eerste dag heb gekoesterd.
Het was een van de eerste reggae plaatjes in m’n collectie en het is gek
dat ik hem nog niet eerder geplaatst heb. Ook uit 1979, net als de plaat
van gisteren. Reggae was denk ik de eerste tropische muziekstijl die na
pop om de hoek kwam kijken. Op Trojan en zeer de moeite
van begin tot eind..
From the first day I had it, this was one of my favourite collectors.
Been playing it so many I can dream the songs. Funny I never got to
post it yet. It is from 1979, just like yesterday’s post. Probably one
of the first reggae albums in my collection, on trojan and
worth every second you’re gonna spend on it..

Big names with the finest tunes in this great collector – another reggae filled weekend coming up !! 🙂 thanks Moos
My friend Kevin had a copy of this when it came out and in the end his girlfriend hid it because I played it so much when I went round there. Needless to say he changed his girlfriend shortly afterwards
Dave Hendley put out a volume 2 of this almost 30 years later – aso great and it has interesting sleevenotes on how there wasn’t much interest in old reggae back in 1979 (even though “old” meant released about 5 – 10 years back at the time)
Dat ziet er inderdaad uit als een plaat die je aan de reggae verslingert. Haal ik binnen, ben benieuwd!
One of the greatest reggae albums ever. Thank you Moos!!
Nice! I used to have a cassette copy of this back in the early 90s … with no song or artist names. Lost it way back, but over the years I came across 60% of these songs on other compilation CDs. Funny thing, a few days after downloading this, I found a used CD of this out-of-print double album at Amoeba Records for just $20. Needless to say, I snatched it up.
Thanks for making this available, if I hadn’t come across it here, I would not have gone out to specifically look for it at the record store.
Very nice indeed, I have never seen the cd issue myself. What great coincidence all together.
BTW, took a look at Amoeba Records store online. I’d love to snoop around in a huge music store like that.
We don’t find them that size here in Holland,..cheers Richie..
