"Ghetto Red Hot" is the 1992 single by Jamaican dancehall artist William Maragh, known commonly as Super Cat. This was the first single from his major label debut album, Don Dada and became a hit through the remix with the use of Lou Donaldson's cover of The Isley Brothers' "It Your Thing" as a sample. This American CD5 features four mixes of "Ghetto Red Hot", including the popular "Hip-Hop Mix" and its instrumental version. This was released by Wild Apache/Columbia.

"Dolly My Baby" is the 1993 single by Jamaican dancehall artist William Maragh, known better as Super Cat. This was not on the original Jamaican pressing of his 1992 album Don Dada but placed on the American version as an extra song. It became a hit due to the remix featuring singer Mary J. Blige and rappers 3rd Eye, Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs, and an artist Combs just signed but hadn't finished an album yet, The Notorious B.I.G. Combs' rhyme style was on the "ruffneck" style which he completely changed soonafter. This would lead to a successful-yet-brief career for B.I.G., who was commonly known by some hip-hop fans as Biggie Smalls. This US CD5 features seven mixes of the song, including the original "reggae mix" and the more well known "Bad Boy Extended Mix".

UB40 was faced with following up the surprisingly successful covers album Labour Of Love (which had topped the U.K. chart, and become their U.S. chart debut) with this album of original material. Their own songs were good, but no match for what then seemed a one-of-a-kind collection. "If It Happens Again," which went to Number Nine in Britain, sounded like a song by The English Beat, while the second single, "Riddle Me" (at Number 59), was a deeper reggae groove tune. It was a good set, but without a classic like "Red, Red Wine," it suffered from a certain anonymity, especially in the U.S.

Arguably the best of Black Uhuru's electrofied albums, even if its predecessor Red was the bigger sell, Chill Out is a seminal blend of styles and cultures. Produced by Sly & Robbie at Channel One Studio in Jamaica, and again backed by the Revolutionaries, ironically the album's greatest beneficiaries were the Riddim Twins, who were rocketed to international fame upon this record's release. They deserved it though, and Chill Out remains as much a tribute to their talent as the vocal trio's. Shakespeare lays down the sinuous bass which provides the foundation for the record's rootsy sound. The four guitarists, three leads, plus Ranchie McLean's reggae riffing, flit across the grooves and genres, touching down on funk, blues, R&B, and rock along the way. The pianists and Wally Badarou's synth add atmosphere, with Dunbar's heavy beats, combining drums with electro syndrums, add a throbbing pulse to the proceedings. The sound is extremely dense, but the producers still found plenty of space for Black Uhuru's sublime vocals.

Having had less than satisfactory experiences working with Clancy Eccles and Rupie Edwards, in 1974 Johnny Clarke finally got his break through another artist's misfortune. Earl Zero originally voiced "Enter into His Gates with Praise," but producer Bunny Lee was less than thrilled, and thus Clarke, who'd provided backing vocals, was given the lead vocal go-ahead himself. The result was seismic, and one of the most incredible partnerships in reggae history was born. By the following year, Clarke had recorded so many songs (a slew of hits among them) that Lee had enough for two albums by the singer – Enter into His Gates with Praise and Put It On, both of which were released in 1975.

At the close of the 1970s, a new, strident style of reggae developed that by the close of the year had supplanted the roots sound, continuing to dominate Jamaica’s musical landscape through to the mid-Eighties: dancehall.

Big Youth's debut full-length album, 1972's Gussie Clark-produced Screaming Target, was an instant classic, showcasing Youth's uncanny ability to transfer the vitality and energy of Jamaica's dancehall sound to the studio setting. But Youth did more than that. Recognizing that if one is given the chance to say something, then one ought to have something useful to say, he lifted the art of DJ toasting to the level of art by intelligently incorporating bits of Rastafarian wisdom, pop-culture references (frequently connected to the world of cinema), children's rhymes and key lines from traditional Jamaican mento folk tunes into his toasts to create a music that both drew from and added to the classic island rhythms he used, ultimately creating a template that allowed constructive cultural themes to be reintroduced into the frequently slack dancehall scene. An essential Jamaican album in its original ten-song incarnation, Trojan has here reissued it with fourteen bonus tracks that include the original vocal cuts Youth used for his versions, along with some marvelous dub versions.

This set, with its powerful melodies, brilliant playing (note the superb horns) and all round attitude, is a sparkling reminder of how reggae sounded when it first influenced the world music scene in the Seventies. But it afso bears testimony to the sophisticated consciousness, wisdom and Afrocentric worldview that were the trademarks of the Rasta rebel soul at that time. This music had weight. That 'Roots' and 'Culture' became pilloried cliches at the beginning of the 80s says something about the rot that had set in at the heart of reggae - and just as much about, how times had changed. The idea of Roots - kind of personified by Alex Haley's mid-Seventies book and TV series of the same period - typified the search for an African identity, after centuries of physical and then economic slavery, amongst Jamaican youth.

Ska / Reggae / Rocksteady / Mod

Jamaican music has long since enjoyed considerable popularity on the Mod scene. In the '60s, Ska, R&B and Jazz 45s were the staple musical diet of the original stylists, while in the late '70s, second generation Mods embraced the British Ska revival that drew heavily upon Jamaican music of the previous decade. Today, the underground Mod fraternity continues to flourish and at its very core is the Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae music that since its earliest days has provided a backdrop to the whole scene. This eclectic double disc collection of the Reggae and R&B sounds that proved irresistible to Mods features seminal artists such as Lee Perry, Toots & The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff and The Skatalites.

Showing no signs of growing old and clamping down, Eddy Grant boldly titles his 2006 release Reparation, a call for restitution for the transatlantic slave trade. Fittingly, the title cut is the album's key track, with Grant urgently crying out for answers over a frantic, synthetic soca beat while crunching guitars remind everyone that this is the man who cranked out the glorious rock-reggae-dance blends "Electric Avenue" and "Living on the Front Line." Of course, he's also the man who wrote and recorded "Baby Come Back" and "Romancing the Stone," sunny and light tracks of which the easygoing "Everything Irie" brings reminders.
