check the back catalogue

rasbongo

ring the alarm and sleng teng feature on other soul jazz comps. If they just released albums with the same songs on it, who would buy them. Big ups souljazz, keep it coming.

Classic dancehall

Again Soul Jazz come up with a killer compilation. These are all dancehall gems from the roots of ragga. Only heard most of these on Vinyl, nicely digitised too. Boom!

Soul JAzz records is the label!!

tocoloro

Sorry, I think you both are wrong. Soul jazz records is the marvellous uk label that publishes this work and many many other incredible compilations. Check them out for their website. I'm looking forward emusic catch more from their catalogue (although here you can find about 30 Soul Jazz records titles)

oooPs

i do agree with RobG... good songs but MOST if not ALL are wrong for the album title! (SoulJAZZ?? SoulJAH would have been a better label name)... seriously though this could have been better arranged and its just a mix of mixed up singles from other better albums... pleeeaaase as a compilation its average!!! go Hail TaXi

Not sure exactly who this is for.

OK, the music here is great, if this is your thing. The problem is, there's too many obvious selections to make this for collectors (Murder She Wrote and Diseases must cost nothing to license judging by the number of compilations I have them on) but enough glaring omissions and substitutions (Pumpkin Belly and Cu-oonuh rather than Sleng Teng and Ring The Alarm, just in the first three tracks) to fall short as a good introduction to dancehall. Five stars for the music, but three for the confusing concept here. Still, let's see more Soul Jazz on eMusic, please!
