Just got to 275, out of the 361. It's been a great time, listening to all of it. Not one duff tune, thus far. Everything's been top quality.

One could make a drinking game, out of listening to it. Every time, you hear a tune, that was ported over, inna Ska, Rocksteady, or Reggae style.....Take a drink. By now, I'd be either: knee walking tight, or passed out. Mr. Green

The only downside, has been that, all of the good people, that introduced me, to these wonderful sounds, are now gone. Though, the happy memories, are still there, some of them, I'd forgotten, 'til I heard certain tunes, though.... Embarrassed

Looking forward to the next 90 or so, tunes! Cool

I'm not surprised. You've been, hopefully, having a good time, in ol' Germany! Wink

FWIW, I've gotten to 304, and the quality still hasn't let up! Very Happy

Only if, you have the time. I've been at it, since Andy posted the link. Thankfully, I've had the time, otherwise, it'll take a while. Each tune, averages around 3 minutes. Wink

Just finished. Not one duffer. 100% hits, for me. An impressive feat, in itself. Would be a great companion to "Jamaican Serenades" Smile

For me. None. Not one. I was surprised, as can be. 361, out of 361. Not all were bulls-eye. But, they hit the target, quite close to it.

I can't remember when I've ever had a "compilation", or "set list", not have any clunkers, to my ears....So this may be a first, for me.

Keep in mind, I grew up on this type of music, partly. So, I had an assist, here and there, thanks to "memory lane". Also, it was fun, remembering, which tunes, had been covered, partly, or wholly, by some of our Jamaican cousins. Not forgetting, a few phrases, here and there, that got used, by say, Andy Capp.... Wink

Over all, it was fun, and entertaining. But, as I've said before....It'll take some doing. 361 is a lot of music, to digest. It took me, around 4 days, to work my way, through it all....But, I'm in the process of getting, a new job, so I've the time, to listen, whilst looking for that new job. Smile

It'll be worth the listen, but it'd probably take me more than 4 days as my attention span (which has never been that good) isn't very long...

In total, I think, there's around 4 or 5 videos, which are no longer up, so that should save you, around 20 minutes. Wink

Surely! I mean, that only leaves you with, around 355 songs, averaging 3 minutes, a song, which comes to: 1,065 minutes, give or take! Which comes to 17 hours, 45 minutes! What's not to like? Very Happy
