Review

Review Text Just like the first volume, BBC Radio DJ David Rodigan's second compilation for the BBC label features "tracks which encompass the positive aspects of real authentic reggae", but this time the selections come from even deeper in the vaults with Chezidek's "Call Pon Dem" being arguably the most recognizable number. That doesn't mean this set of couldn't woo the reggae newcomer since Rodigan's selections are all approachable and persuasive, but those past their freshman level courses will benefit even more, rediscovering underappreciated gems and encountering many of these grand cuts for the first time. Since there's no mixing and Rodigan's voice is never heard, the magic comes from his diverse choices -- roots, dub, and dancehall are all represented -- and the sequencing, which somehow sorts it all. There's the proper soul of Leo Hall's "Let's Dub It Up," the easy dancehall of Chaka Demus & Pliers, bass rumbling dub from Augustus Pablo and King Tubby, plus Macka B blending nyahbinghi with 21st century roots music. They all coexist peacefully, even smoothly, in Rodigan's world, and while the DJ's short essay in the liner notes doesn't provide much background information on the artists, it does make his deep love of reggae all the more infectious. ~ David Jeffries
