Rhythm Come Forward – A Reggae Anthology

CD (Item 613215) Columbia, Mid 70s-Early 80s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


4.80 18

An odd compilation pulled together by Columbia in the 80s, not because the assortment of tracks is especially out of place or without continuity, but because the set seems mostly to be pulled together to capitalize on reggae's popularity, though it was assembled well after most major labels had given up on cashing in with Jamaican music. Though some material is listed as previously unreleased like Aswad's "Drum & Bass Line" and "African Children", though those tracks were available at the time, but the compilation does have a unique Francois Kevorkian remix of Jimmy Cliff's "Treat The Youths Right", and more than a handful of other nice numbers. 9 tracks in all, the set also includes "One Love" and "Simmer Down" by Bob Marley & The Wailers, "legalize It" and "Stepping Razor" by Peter Tosh, "Blood Stain" by Yellowman and Sister Nancy and "Try Jah Love" by Third World.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

A pretty great Lee Scratch Perry CD two-fer, featuring the complete Chapter One and Blackboard Jungle Dub LPs. Both albums feature Scratch at his dizzyingly dubby, early 70s Upsetters best – and it's probably as good a point as any to acquaint yourself with the dub maestro. Tracks include ... CD
