With the sad and very untimely recent demise of Clement 'Coxsone' Dodd, King of Sound Systems, music lost one of its truest and most long-term visionaries. Here Soul Jazz touch their ninth essential collection of his output, and it makes no excuses for its celebratory leanings. Michigan and Smiley and Johnny Osbourne both version 'Rub a dub style', Heptones' mighty 'Pretty Looks', original deejay version of Burning Spear's 'Rocking Time', Dennis Brown, Alton Ellis, Horace Andy, Jazzbo's superb 'School' and a wonderful Lone Ranger 'Automatic' over a tune i know as 'Place called africa'. Too much else to mention in full in the 18 tracks, Slim Smith, Jennifer Lara, Sound Dimension, Don Drummond, The Wailers - damn, the man was a genius, and his spirit will live forever in this incredible music.
