looks o.k., on the other hand, I absolutely prefer albums by one artist instead of compilations of different singers.

This looks like the usual PS suspect: One or two riddims a side, two nice cuts of each and two cuts which makes it really boring hearing the same riddim again. I mean, I like showcase albums, but please not too much of the same. It might work with real killer riddims, as on the Hudson anthology on trojan. But the Herman Chin Loy-compilation to me was a bit dissapointing as it was just not consistent.

Agree somewhat

Yeah like the umpteen versions of Alton's My Little Daughter (poor AE tune anyway IMO) on Aquarius Rock, which interrupts an otherwise smooth grove,

always the same problem with compilations/compilers:

They have all different taste and despite their experience in reggae
for dozens of years they always again manage it to put poor fillers
between killers. sometimes i really doubt the taste of some compilers
using cuts from absolutely untalented singers/djs on otherwise solid riddims. or using crap tracks only because they are rare (and after hearing them you know why).

but despite this fact i still prefer compilations ....

The 1st Santic set on PS (even darker shade of black) is excellent. Hope this one won't dissapoint.

Yes, enjoyed the first one, especially Roman Stewart's sublime "Peace In The Valley".

Looking forward to this one too.

Respect
