It's not often that you run across a mix of early reggae that doesn't include a bunch of songs that you're all too familiar with, not necessarily because you've heard a lot of reggae, but because a lot of reggae mixes include "deep cuts" that are really only deep to myopic Marleyites. So this sucker hit the spot. Only one song that I've heard before. Some familiar names, but unfamiliar songs, and some completely unknown to me before tonight. Girlie and Jomo? Never heard of them. But shit, all of these are just awesome, from the early DJ stylings of Count Matchuki to a seriously puzzling Millie Small. Prince Buster, the Upsetter? Yeah. Dice the Boss? Who? This is an emphatic yes. Go. It's available streaming if you don't want to commit, or as a mp3 download if you want to hear it again and again. I don't have to tell you which way I'm leaning.
