Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote More of a history lesson than a good listen in total, Muzik City is the story of Trojan, warts and all. Those looking for a good selection of the reggae label's best moments have plenty of other choices and might want to start with the great Tighten Up collections or wait for the 50th release in Trojan's three-CD series (a greatest-hits box to be compiled by votes from fans and due in 2004). Anyone who is a die-hard Trojan enthusiast will find plenty of surprises, secrets, and a really well done booklet to paw through. The first two discs of Muzik City are truly some of the greatest moments in rocksteady and roots reggae. But just like a two-CD Motown collection, this is really just the tip of the iceberg and John Holt, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Big Youth, and others have many more great moments to investigate. If all four CDs had focused on the hits and highlights this would truly be the box to own, but the third CD is hardly meant for repeat listening. Many of the disc's "Rarities & Oddities" are downright embarrassing (which the always honest liner notes are happy to point out). Trojan's forays into the worlds of calypso, novelty, and pop music were horribly misguided, and disc three is full of them (including a horrific reggae and yodeling matchup). Hard to imagine laughing at the stately Trojan label, but once that's over it's on to disc four's treasure chest of rarities. The hardcore should rightfully drool over the Jah Woosh and Keith Hudson team-up, a dank dub from Thunder, and an I-Roy/John Holt dubplate that includes a bit of studio banter. Great stuff for the serious fan, who probably own most of disc one and two ten times over. So who is this set made for? If your wallet is fat enough to forgive disc three, Muzik City is a fair introduction to the label that, along with Island, dominated reggae's early years. ~ David Jeffries
