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, and it's a lot more generous at 20 tracks. It isn't arranged chronologically, which actually helps the programming by splitting up the covers over the course of the running order. There's a bit more toughness to the earlier songs, both in the lyrics and the punchier performances. Yet in the end, the sonic differences are subtle enough that casual fans should still be able to enjoy them (unless they only want to hear the band performing reggae-pop versions of oldies they already know).

THE PRE HISTORY is finally back!!! Fortunately, the legendary CD series based on the Radio 2 program of the same name by its driving force, Guy De Pré, will have a sequel to the beautiful 1980s! After the huge success of volume 1 which was #1 for weeks.
Again a luxurious gift box with no less than 10 CDs and an extensive booklet with texts and facts from each year. Guy De Pré wrote the lyrics and selected all tracks, some of which have never been compiled on previous Pré History CDs! Just like last year, they appear again in a limited vinyl box: 5 LPs with a selection of the best songs from the CD box.
De Pré Historie – the 1980s Volume 2, for example, is a special time document of a fantastic decade. More than 10 hours of music from the bands and artists that made the 80s so unique! Even bigger hits from eg. Queen, The Rolling Stones, Simple Minds, The Cure, John Lennon, Paul Simon, Elton John and much much more!
All this in a fresh new layout and a luxurious version that has been taken care of down to the last detail. De Pré Historie – the 1980s Volume 2 is an absolute favorite for every music lover.

"The innovation, spirit and power of Jamaican music is a constant source of creative manna for us," explains Eric Hilton of DC-based electronic band THIEVERY CORPORATION about their new album THE TEMPLE OF I & I. "On the musical map, Jamaica is an entire continent. Frankly, we could have spent a year there, soaking up the vibes in the air and the strength and resilience resonating from the people. And for us, the only way to connect with this rich source of inspiration was to work in that environment - to feel the pulse of the place."

This is simply an essential album: Three discs that contain the best of ska, a rhythm born in Jamaica (pre-dating reggae) and was so popular in England during the sixties (where they call it bluebeat), to the point where it was the inspiration for a movement (the two-tone) that in the early 80 s gave way to Madness, The Specials, The Selecter, Bad Manners and The English Beat as main exports who earned worldwide fame.

Robert Palmer was an English singer-songwriter, musician, and record producer. He was known for his distinctive, soulful voice, eclectic mix of musical styles on his albums, combining soul, jazz, rock, pop, reggae, blues, and sartorial acumen. He found success both in his solo career and with the Power Station, and had Top 10 songs in both the UK and the US. His iconic music videos directed by British fashion photographer Terence Donovan for the hits "Addicted to Love" and "Simply Irresistible" featured identically-dressed dancing women with pale faces, dark-eye makeup and bright-red lipstick, which resembled the women in the art of Patrick Nagel, an artist popular in the 1980s. Palmer's involvement in the music industry commenced in the 1960s, covered four decades and included a spell with Vinegar Joe.

This is an excellent reggae sampler. It should be obvious that everyone's first introduction to reggae should be Bob Marley's great LEGEND which is the reggae desert island disc of all time. That is the place to start for any introduction to reggae. This sampler is a good next step and includes classics from Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spear, Black Uhuru, Toots and the Maytals, and many others. The rhythm section for many of these tracks is the famous Sly and Robbie duo…

Uprising would be the final studio album featuring Bob Marley & the Wailers to be released during Marley's lifetime. Prophetically, it also contains some of the band's finest crafted material, as if they were cogent that this would be their final outing. The album's blend of religious and secular themes likewise creates a very powerful and singular quest for spirituality in a material world. Although it is argued that an album's graphic design rarely captures the essence of the work inside, the powerful rebirthing image of a rock solid Marley emerging with his arms raised in triumph could not be a more accurate visual description of the musical jubilation within. Musically, the somewhat staid rhythms often synonymous with reggae have been completely turned around to include slinky and liquid syncopation.
