It was still on Amazon for a Lady, so I've bagged it, mainly for Marc's comment above - both the "all in one place" and the "no Judge Dread or commercial silliness" remarks Wink

I've read some reviews, where his absence is a glaring failure on the compilers part.....Mr. Green

How's that booklet, with this updated edition Question Smile


Pretty good actually. I did find this on an odd comment though about Reggae after the Skinheads had died out:

"Reggae in the UK eventually evolved into Lover's Rock, which was a long way from the sounds of '69".

For me, LR was only ever a particular genre of the music. There was UK Roots and other British-produced music that was just recognisable as Reggae: the Mexicano, Roy Shirley, Tito Simon, Owen Gray, The Marvels, The Cimarons, The Blood Sisters etc etc. Some of them may have dabbled in it here and there, but Lover's wasn't the only show in town.


Yeah totally agree, I think at the time of writing my thoughts were stuck, in a genre based scene. Skinhead reggae made a big impact on the British public, and by 72 roots music already had a good foothold in this country. But for me Lovers Rock which i feel is a British genre was the next real sound change which was going to influence reggae as a whole. Which i suppose doesn't come across really in one sentence. With limited time and only so many words write it in, The spec was to influence the casual buyer, that would perhaps buy or look into Trojans future releases. I was humbled to be asked to do it and i hope i caught a pen picture of the skinhead scene back then and now. Hope this explains my error, and you could also add Judge dread to the list above. Love him or hate him, he influenced a lot of people.

I wound up plumping, for it, and haven't regretted it. I thought the liners, brought new life, to a 1980 compilation. It also helped, having the bonus tracks, too.

Comparing liners, this is right up there, with what was included, with the "Skinhead Reggae Box Set", "Skinhead Jamboree", "Dancehall '69", & "Skinhead Revolt". I gave the set, a review, too....It's over on the "Skinhead & Revive Recommendations" thread. Somewhere. Smile
