I heard this dude playing twice. First in 2006 at Panorama bar. Lovely night and versatile set. Heard him again, different set and setting.. it was monotonic and cheap techhouse. As a producer he is utter shit. I agree with the negative comments below. ... See full review

Black Disco is pure Cape Jazz dope. Amazing sonics. Quality pressing from Matsuli Music. Finally affordable.

Gorgeous record. Lucky you, if you own an original copy. But you would rather keep it as a collectors item. Hot Casa made a quality reissue. Absolutely worth the money. And yes, CDs will provide you with the same sonics.

In my opinion, hardly anybody created a better and more soulful and wonderful sounding bridge for the old and the new. Sugar Minott is one of the greatest. His work in the 70ies is amazing and he continued to be as passionted and creative throughout the ... See full review

Juuuuust the worst, best to be avoided. Got an incredible sounding Japanese CD instead ... what a mind blowing different listening experience.

I have not really followed Kruders (and, or Dorfmeisters) music after their rather short, but intense impact, but every release i stumble after that period, sounds like utter cheap minimal tech-house crap.

This is weird indeed... i always thought you would loose fidelity, if you put more tracks on one side. Anyway, more tracks are nice, but it changes the end of the original and that's odd, when you are not used to it. Nice if you got the extra money for ... See full review

Good Dubstep label, with a bunch of outstanding tracks, but extremely overpriced. There should be no risk to reissue some of that stuff. Not decent to let people pay this ridiculous prices for something that is most certainly not too special, or ... See full review

Untrue...unfortunately not exactly the same record, some changes have been made. Blood on his Lips is a significant example and it gets worse on the B side. Also when buying this, take into consideration, that Scientist doesn't get a nickel from this ... See full review

Don't have couple of thousand dollars to spend? I finally recieved my CD reissue and i am very happy with it. I guess it can't have sounded a lot better in 1969. For that money absolutely worth to get the beautiful experience of the entire album.

Drumkotnights. Schlagertechno played at Musikantenhain and Panoramastadl. Seriously, that label is as artfree and waveless as possible and a commercial one way street.

Interessting that the majority still craves for a vinyl repress, particular weird for such silent and detailed music that is certainly not well presented with a medium like vinyl. And why prefer the shortend tracks over the full length. I guess it showes ... See full review

He is a true ambassador of Jamaican music. This compilation covers a great part of Jackie Mittoo artistic work, pure joy to listen and sounds as good as possible. Proper product from the Heartbeat crew.
