Often referred to as the Jamaican Otis Redding, Ken Boothe probably came closer than any other Jamaican singer of his generation (Toots Hibbert aside) to re-creating an island version of Memphis soul, and his gritty and nuanced vocals on his frequent covers of American R&B hits often brought refreshing new dimensions to the songs. This two-disc, 53-track collection spans Boothe's work from 1962 to 1995 and establishes the obvious fact that he has been a very consistent, intriguing and top-notch singer through the years. Like most veteran Jamaican musicians, Boothe has tracked sides with several producers along the way, including Duke Reid, Clement Dodd, Sonia Pottinger, Leslie Kong, Lloyd Charmers, Niney Holness and Bunny Lee and he has done outstanding work with all of them. This set captures the highlights of most of those associations. From Kong we get the resilient "Freedom Street" and "Drums of Freedom." Boothe's productive stay with Charmers yields impressive covers of Syl Johnson's "Is It Because I'm Black," Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" and Bread's "Everything I Own," along with the original composition "Crying over You." Niney Holness produced the influential "Silver Words" while Bunny Lee helmed the impressive remake of "You're No Good," first cut by Boothe in the late '60s for Clement Dodd. What keeps this sweeping compilation from being ideal is the failure to license and include any of Boothe's sides from Studio One with Dodd, which means the absence of the original versions of "You're No Good" and "The Train Is Coming" (which featured background harmonies by the Wailers -- the version included in this set is a 1995 remake with Shaggy) and his solid covers of "Puppet on a String" and "Mustang Sally." This is still a very solid set, and the most expansive introduction to Boothe currently on the market, but the absence of any of the Studio One material leaves an obvious hole.

Trojan: 50 Years of Digging Reggae

Once past the Bob Marley tree, many reggae fans discovered the depth and diversity of the Jamaican music forest through the compilations of Trojan Records, some of which became true Proust madeleines. For the occasion of the label's 50th birthday, Qobuz looks back over the fluctuating trajectory of the label, together with Laurence Cane-Honeysett, curator of Trojan Records and author of the book The Story of Trojan Records.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit, even forty-five years after its release.

Reggaeton in 10 Albums

A combination of Jamaican dancehall, American hip-hop, Caribbean rhythms and Spanish wit, reggaeton has, since its birth in the early 90s, shaken the world of pop music time and time again. From DJ Playero’s first mixtapes to Daddy Yankee’s “Barrio Fino” and Don Chezina’s “Tra-Tra-Tra, Puerto Rican musicians and their Colombian counterparts in Medellin have done their utmost to take over the world. In the last decade, they have done just that thanks to artists such as Luis Fonsi, J. Balvin and Bad Bunny. Read on for 10 of the genre’s most important albums. Reggaeton won’t be going anywhere any time soon.
