A whopping 15 tracks again.

Stop ripping people off SJ, should be at least 20 tunes for an album of short 2 and a half to 3 and a half minute tunes.

Those are all good tracks, but I am surprised they omitted Live Loving and Peace Treaty Style, not to mention Oh Mr DC (for anyone who doesn't have the Showcase on Heartbeat)... why omit those tracks and include Party Time, for example, which is a rather lame version when compared to the Heptones original?

Good points James...seems strange alright....

Gordon....15 tracks is quite enough to be spread out over 2 lp's....more than that and the vinyl quality will start get mashup...

That said can't see why they dont put more on the cd's....they are putting alot out recently though can't keep up missed quite a few!

Do you know if that tracklist is definite Ray? After all they do see to have a habit of changing these between announcment and release.

I was really looking forward to this because "Live Loving" has never been issued on CD. But only 5 LL tracks reduces my anticipation. Yeah, and no "OH Mr DC"??????

Does seem a bit tight. Are the tracks on this that overlap with Showcase the exact same recordings?

15 tracks times 3 minutes equals 45 minutes. thats about 11 minutes per side over 4 sides (2 records).

thats pretty skimpy. the sound shouldnt start to suffer until the sides exceed 20 minutes each...you could put another 2 songs per side easy before anything suffered at all at 33 rpm.

on the other hand, they dont pay us to compile their records, we buy them.

Oh Mr. DC may be missing in action because a discomix of it was on Studio One Classics and they seem to go some way not to have duplicates in their catalogue, that's the closest to an explanation i can think of

This one reminds me of the Jackie Mittoo SJ comp. Nice intro to the man for the newcomer, but useless if you owned Jackie's Studio One lp's. This Sugar comp only has 3 non lp tracks. Otherwise if you have More, Showcase and Live Loving, why bother?

They're damned if they do and damned if they don't. It's a practice that even the sainted 'Blood & Fire' indulge in from time to time.

By the way Gordon, SoulJazz aren't ripping anyone off, the covers clearly state what tracks are included. It's up to you if you wish to purchase or not. What you see is what you get. I fail to see how anyone is being ripped off.

I reckon SoulJazz are doing a fairly good job with the Studio One stuff, though personally I don't touch it with a barge pole. It really makes me laugh when people here spend so much time and effort debating the merits of CD v vinyl sound qualities when after all is said and done all they are going to do is rush out and buy Coxone's stuff which may have sounded great in the studio, but 99% of his recordings sounds dreadful. It's like you're hearing it coming through your neighbours wall. They almost had to give his stuff away in Jamaica. To attempt to sell it at full price really would have been a rip-off.

I don't know what is your equipment you're listening your Studio One with but most of Studio 1 stuff sounds here very good. Excluding some bad examples with **** up pressings of late - but on the whole I don't understand what seems to be the problem - at least compared to other Jamaican recordings. That hearing through the neighbours wall indicates you have some troubles with your speaker setup perhaps? Are the cables polarity checked to be correct for example? Any examples of such records, please?
