Reggae Anthology: Joe Gibbs - Scorchers from the Mighty Two

iTunes Editors’ Notes

Joe Gibbs’ most famous production was unquestionably the thunderous Two Sevens Clash, an apocalyptic Old Testament-quoting anthem that reflected the social and political turmoil wracking Jamaica in the latter half of the ‘70s. The Mighty Diamonds clearly modeled their epochal Right Time on that album's incendiary blend of harmony and politics, while British punk outfit the Clash, named themselves after it. It’s hardly surprising that this well-assembled if less than comprehensive collection of Gibbs’ best work should open with this deathless tune, but the variety of rarities and classics contained herein comes as a pleasant surprise. While era-defining tunes like George Nooks’ slow burning “Tribal War” and Althea and Donna’s dancehall-wrecking “Uptown Top Ranking” make their expected appearances, it’s the inclusion of relatively obscure tunes like Gregory Isaacs overlooked “Babylon Too Tough,” Cornell Campbell’s heart-stopping “Rope In” and DJ Trinity’s take on the classic “Loving Pauper” that make this set a truly essential reminder of Gibbs incomparable talents as a producer.

Customer Reviews

once again!!

When i first saw this release, i really got excited and was ready to click on the buy button. the selection alone makes it a great buy. but unfortunatly because of the total incompetance of the people at VP records that are in charge of mastering i will not buy this album. once again classic reggae music is being destroyed. everything soungs like it was encoded at 96k...not 256...Shame.

Mastering mess

No doubt about the selection; These are all classics and a must have for any roots lover. I think the overall sound is fine, considering how old these tracks are, but 90 % of these songs are mixed totally left heavy. I compared them to tracks I already had on CD and vinyl, and it's totally off, to the point that I am going to try to figure out how to get my money back...really a shame

EXCELLENT COMPILATION - INCLUDING A KILLER RARITY!

I was STUNNED to see the inclusion of 'Su Su pon Rasta' in this excellent compilation. It's the original version of the track on which Prince Far-I built his massive hit 'Heavy Manners'. To give you some idea of its rarity, collectors pay HUNDREDS of pounds for the record. I' ve been a roots reggae DJ forever now, and I have an old scratchy 45" of this song which never fails to excite reggaeheads when I drop the needle on it. Wicked!
