Review

Review Text One of a handful of introductory reggae collections on Mango, This Is Reggae Music, Vol. 3 takes in some prime early roots sides by the likes of Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, and Burning Spear. The spotlight, though, rests on the idiosyncratic one with the spliff: Lee "Scratch" Perry. From those innovative days in the late '60s and early '70s to the final Jamaican years at his Black Ark studio, Perry is heard laying down some of his patented dub with the Upsetters ("Croaking Lizard") and putting his indelible production mark on vocal sides by Max Romeo ("War Inna Babylon") and Junior Murvin ("Police and Thieves"). Better collections are to had, but at a bargain price and in good condition, this one should do just fine for the reggae newcomer. ~ Stephen Cook
