This is Part 1 of a two album set. With their first Dancehall compilation, Soul Jazz had to include many obligatory, consensus selections (ie. "Murder She Wrote") to set the stage. Don't get me wrong, it was still one of the best dancehall comps ever. With the second volume, Soul Jazz has hit their true stride, stretching deeper into the genre for a selection that will have all the 7" collectors, spliff-heads and trustafarians buzzing (selections by Blood & Fire founder Steve Barrow). Double vinyl featuring 12 tracks and full linear notes. Recommended.
