Impact! - Rare And Unreleased Reggae, Funk & Soul From The Vaults Of Impact! And Randy Records
(Soul Jazz US18, 2003) Selected by Souljazzsoundsystem

Pourquoi se tourner inexorablement vers les rééditions des labels Blood & Fire, Pressure Sounds ou Soul Jazz en ce qui concerne le reggae et le dub roots? Tout simplement parce qu'ils sont les seuls à dignement célébrer cette musique avec leurs sorties au packaging toujours impeccables et au son non moins proche de la perfection. Quand on sait que les principales sources sont les 45 tours d'époque, on se rend un peu plus compte de la qualité du travail présentée... Cette compilation-là est la petite soeur de la "Randy's 17 North Parade" sortie chez Pressure Sounds précédemment, compilant des tracks de Clive Chin, parmi les plus funky qu'on nous ait donné d'entendre sur l'île à cette époque. Les deux sont vivement conseillées.
