This is the very early Marley, the ska beginnings of the Wailers in the early-'60s Jamaican scene. All 20 tracks were set down from 1963-1966 in Kingston's famed Studio One, and it's really the freshest music the reggae icon made in his storied career. Yet it's also his least known. One look at the photos in the package amidst the liner notes would throw any layman; there's no dreadlocks or standard issue rasta getup, or wrinkles on his lion-maned grizzled face. Every bit the equal of the more-celebrated sensations that made the horrific poverty of third-world urban ghetto life a little less harsh, the young Wailers have all the best tenets of the brand new genre down. It's the staccato party trumpet blasts of "Love and Affection," the cooling presence at all times, the fast-but-not-too-furious off-beat bounce that went back to Cab Calloway and songs like "Minnie the Moocher," the spiritual love songs and calls to peace, and the general happy, warm tones. One listen to this super-early version of the later-staple "One Love" is enough to shock those who've never heard the pre-rocksteady days of these titans, who would do so much to put the much slower, later reggae style on the worldwide map. And anyone who had the little taste offered on disc one of the recent Songs of Freedom career-spanning box set will likely want to jump all over this; as will any fan of soul, R&B, ska, and just plain old good-time music. There's no hint of the pain and suffering and enormous burden of his later, admittedly just as brilliant, works. Even "Nobody Knows (The Troubles I Bear)" is a call to festivity. Put this on and dance the night away, and sing along.

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.
