With a group as prolific as the Maytals, led by a singer whose career is as long-running as Toots Hibbert's, few compilations will come away unscathed by fans and critics alike, least of all those that purport to be something more than a simple best-of collection. Time Tough: The Anthology is no exception, for even with two discs and 41 tracks the set can only scratch the surface of Toots & the Maytals' canon. The biggest complaint comes straight off the bat, with a mere five songs dedicated to the ska years. During this era, the Maytals unleashed a flood of fabulous singles, with their last, 1966's "Bam Bam," winning Jamaica's annual Festival Song Competition. Five tracks gives awfully short shrift to this instrumental early period in the band's career. Much to fans' regret, Toots Hibbert's incarceration for drug possession saw the group sidelined during the rocksteady era, but they returned with a ferocity as the reggae era began. Under the aegis of producer Leslie Kong, the trio were unstoppable, sending a deluge of stellar singles into the chart, of which ten of the best are gathered up here. Kong's death in 1971 barely slowed the group's output, while a deal with Island Records saw international release for their crucial Funky Kingston, In the Dark, and Reggae Got Soul albums, whose tracks fill much of the rest of disc one. The first half of disc two follows the group until its demise (they took their final bow together at Reggae Sunsplash in 1982), with the rest of the tracks selectively following Hibbert's solo career down to 1988. Thus, the compilation does provide an adequate overview, but weighted as it is toward the Kong and then the Island years, not necessarily a fair one. Still, most fans will be happy with the results, especially as the compilation includes a clutch of previously unissued songs. It still remains by far the most thorough collection available.

Trojan : 50 ans à digger le reggae

Une fois passé l’arbre Bob Marley, de nombreux amateurs de reggae ont découvert la profondeur et la diversité de la forêt musicale jamaïcaine à travers les compilations de Trojan Records, devenues pour certains de véritables madeleines de Proust. A l’occasion de ses 50 ans, Qobuz revient sur la trajectoire fluctuante d’un label qui fait partie des références de la réédition reggae, en compagnie de Laurence Cane-Honeysett, curateur de la maison de disques et auteur du livre “The Story of Trojan Records”.

Objectif Lune : The Dark Side of the Moon

Album phare dans la discographie de Pink Floyd, “The Dark Side of the Moon” est le fruit d’une élaboration relativement lente qui remonte pratiquement à 1968. “A Saucerful of Secrets” (le morceau phare de l’album éponyme) en est, pour Nick Mason, le point de départ. Derrière, “Ummagumma” laissait s’exprimer des personnalités qu’il allait falloir amalgamer pour décrocher la timbale. Pink Floyd poursuivit sa quête du disque idéal avec “Meddle”, sur lequel le groupe accentuait sa maîtrise du travail du studio, et “Atom Heart Mother”, avant d’atteindre le nirvana avec “The Dark Side of the Moon”, dont la perfection ne s’est jamais érodée quarante-cinq ans après sa sortie.

10 figures méconnues du reggae jamaïcain

Derrière les succès internationaux de Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff ou Shaggy à une autre époque, la scène locale jamaïcaine est toujours restée foisonnante, se renouvelant sans cesse et chassant une star par une autre. Qobuz vous fait découvrir 10 héros locaux du reggae jamaïcain qui sont passés trop souvent sous le radar du grand public.
