Although Jamaica's Jimmy Cliff has had a long and continuing career on the international scene with his thoughtful and infectious brand of reggae-pop, his best work was undoubtedly done in the late '60s and early '70s, the period covered by this collection. Everything that is absolutely essential is here, from his breakthrough hit, 1969's "Wonderful World, Beautiful People" (inspired by Cliff's appearance at the 1968 International Song Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), his powerful protest song "Viet Nam," a pair of gems ("The Harder They Come," "Many Rivers to Cross") from the Harder They Come soundtrack, his stately nyahbinghi-based hymn "Bongo Man," and the first recorded version of Cat Stevens' "Wild World," actually produced by Stevens, who then went on to voice his own hit record of the song. Although there are more complete and comprehensive anthologies of Cliff's career available (the best is probably Hip-O's two-disc Anthology), this short, concise survey of his peak years gets it exactly right, without a single slack track.

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 World According to Peter Gabriel

A figurehead of the British prog rock scene with Genesis, Peter Gabriel, who will turn 70 on February 13th, later became a champion of world music and an example of the politically engaged artist, through his label Real World, his Womad festivals and of course the protest song “Biko”, etched into the history books and made famous from the Amnesty International tour concerts. Let’s take a look back at the career of a pop star not like the others.
