Rewind and Come Again

Various Artists “Rewind and Come Again” (Moods International)

This is reggae compilation of a different kind. Instead of being assembled by a record company, a DJ, or collector, this set features fifteen tunes from the early, formative reggae era selected by one of the music’s best producers, Harry Mudie. From the sweet and heavy instrumental cut “Strong Back” at kickoff, to excellent vocals like Winston Shand and the Sheiks’ “Life is But a Dream” which features harmonies so good they almost hurt, to the Jamaican R&B cut “Wedding Day” from Carlton Moore, there is a nice mix of tunes here that play well together. Mudie, who remains active in production today, has done well in choosing tunes not just because they are rare, or old-school, but because they really do deserve a rewind and another play. Sound quality varies a bit from tune to tune, but based on the stock that’s to be expected, and after good mastering work, is no problem. You might have to seek this one, but when you find it you’ll be rewarded.
