serious times (bobby digital reggae anthology vol. 2) (3 CD set, £13.95)label: vp
The second of two multi-disc compilations chronicling the career of famed reggae producer Bobby 'Digital' Dixon. Bobby Digital breathed new life into “live” roots reggae with a succession of groundbreaking releases by Garnett Silk, Sizzla and Morgan Heritage that helped restore Rasta music to its former glory. This highly desirable three disc set collects together some of the biggest of those big game-changes alongside the hits that secured Bobby Digital’s reputation as a modern-day master of Jamaican music. This compilation gathers many of his best-ever productions from those heady times when specialist stores were awash with 7” singles, freshly arrived from Jamaica, and reggae music was once more on the rise. Bonus disc features HEATHEN CHANT MEGAMIX by Mixmaster Mighty Mike.
