if you dont have it its some of his best material.. title track, in the right way, every little thing, night in september, behold him, his imperial majesty, dont give it up...

many killers... i got it and then started searching for the 7"s .. (which had nicer dubs than expected and i always play a vocal from the LP followed by a dub!)

GET IT.

The one on Patates records? If yes it is a very very good set full of classics and killers.

allright, the set is nice, but on the other hand, rod taylor isnt the best singer I`ve heard. I mean, lots of the dancehall singers rather sing lousy, its usually a hit and run affair, sometimes they hit the note, sometimes they miss it. But rod talyor is at the bottom end. the songs though are quite nice and the riddims too.

Rod Taylor came in second place (according to my extremely scientific poll)...

I´ll never understand this obsession with extended versions .

Why should you ever want them on a lp?

why not?

how about because i like them because i like 12" singles and because the 12" singles are not around anymore for the most part?

i could never understand obsessions with songs that are truncated right when they start to get good but maybe thats just me.

Why would you want the 12" mix?

mainly because alot of what is reggae is the riddim used under the vocal, thats the whole point ! So to have the 12" mix or the version is a great & wonderful thing, you get the song & the riddim with hopefully a great dub start after the vocal is finished.
imo anyway

ps . i would always go for the 12" mix if available & thankfully B&F agree since their releases usually feature great extended mixes.

Well, that might just as well not been my point.


You stay with your B&F CD releases with extended mixes and NICE graphics. I rather flip my 45, if in the mood.

(To be honest, personally, if I were that much in to LPs at all, would easily prefer Joseph´Coat of Many Colours in its orginal version than a version with extended versions and bonusmaterial. What is the playing time for that cd? 70minutes? Well, that is pure torture.

I never said that I can sing, thats why I dont release any records

I just wanted to say for once that the level of thee singers didnt really increase since the start of the dancehall days.
