Part three in the series "Roots Of Reggae" on the Music Club label brings another 20 classic recordings from the heydays of ska, rocksteady and early reggae. This varied selection - drawn from the vaults of Trojan Records - includes some fine contributions from great Jamaican artists like Bob Marley & The Wailers, Alton Ellis, Jimmy Cliff, Lee Perry, The Maytals and Augustus Pablo, whose efforts throughout their musical career not only had a serious impact in Jamaica but also far beyond. Best tracks include the three early Bob Marley & The Wailers cuts, The Ethiopians' immortal The Whip and Alton Ellis' Rock Steady. This nice compilation set collects some fine moments from Jamaica's musical history and can be a welcome supplement to one's reggae collection.
