While the two previous Best of UB40 collections neatly divided the band's output between their more political early period and their later, covers-oriented pop success, they were also only ten tracks apiece. The Very Best of UB40 1980-2000 is the first comprehensive single-disc overview of the band's career.

Black Uhuru - Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (Showcase reedition) (1979)
Reggae | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
Heartbeat CD HB-18 | rel: 1987 | 255Mb

Generally acknowledged to be Black Uhuru's masterpiece as well as one of the defining documents of roots reggae, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (originally released on the Taxi label under the title Showcase in 1979, then reissued as Black Uhuru in 1980) was the first album to feature singer Puma Jones as a member of the group's vocal trio lineup, and it was also their first with Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. These additions gave the group a tremendous lift: Jones' keening, almost North African-inflected voice became an instantly identifiable part of Black Uhuru's sound, and the chugging rhythms supplied by Dunbar and Shakespeare were the perfect instrumental accompaniment.

Actually I don't really know anymore which record I've ripped here 10 years ago, my sister brought it over. The first 15 tracks are from the compilation linked from Discogs, and the rest is side B of the LP "Wonderful World, Beautiful People". Either it's some obscure compilation not listed in Discogs or I mixed up some tracks from different records. Anyway – Jimmy Cliff is always worth listening, enjoy!

Bunny Wailer – Protest (1977)
Max Flac 16Bit/44.1kHz = 250 MB | Mp3 VBR0 = 75 MB | No Scans | RAR
Vinyl LP | Island ILPS 9512 | Reggae | Jamaica

Protest may have been overshadowed by the former Wailer's classic solo debut, Blackheart Man, but shouldn't be overlooked. It's an equally compelling work for the same reasons, including creative arranging, assured production, and some of Wailer's sweetest-ever vocal performances. In some ways, his style is arguably the most distinctive, being dreamier and more meditative than the impassioned agit-prop of his old bandmates Bob Marley and Peter Tosh. …

Kukan Dub Lagan - New Life New Vision (2009)
Reggae, dub | 1cd | EAC Rip | Flac + Cue + Log | covers
MikelaBella MBCD003 | rel: 2009 | 470Mb

It’s time for the third album by Kukan Dub Lagan. The previous two albums were received pretty well by the dubloving public, and this one will be no exception. If you’re a bit into world/fusion or dub music you can’t go around his name anymore, he’s a bit like Toires was back in his high days. The nice thing about this album is the many influences (like reggae, electro, latino music) and instruments (piano, guitar, flute, drums) that can be heard throughout. Itay Berger did a nice job here, also with the really positive vibe that springs forth from this album. It has to be your cup of tea though.

MADNESS Mad Not Mad (2010 issue UK 25th Anniversary Collectors Edition 3-disc [2CD/1DVD] set - Originally released in 1985, 'Mad Not Mad' was the Nutty Boys' sixth and final studio album. Bar the band's unhappiness about the album's production, it still contains their inimitable touches of humour and melancholy, and their wry insights into ordinary British life, though with a more reflective, world-weary feel than any of their previous albums.

Bob Marley - Legend: The Best of Bob Marley and The Wailers (2003)
DVD9 | VIDEO_TS | MPEG-2 Video, PAL 4:3 (720x576), 25fps | 52:42 - 01:25:15 | 7.75 GB
English | Audio1: AC3 2 ch | Audio2: AC3 6 ch
Sub: English, Spanish, Portuguese, German, French
Reggae | Label: Island/Universal

If you are expecting just the videos for the tracks on Bob Marley's extremely successful greatest hits CD, you are going to be pleasantly surprised with this DVD. Legend is much more than a simple, video anthology. It is a historical telling of the music of Bob Marley presented in 23 videos, most of which are performances, and a 90-minute documentary. The documentary is a collage of images and video clips put to a running dialogue by Marley. Unless you are very familiar with the Jamaican dialect, it is recommended to watch this with the subtitles turned on. Interesting, but there are better documentaries out there (e.g., The Bob Marley Story: Caribbean Nights).
