There are a lot of things that made our childhood and teenage years unforgettable. Maybe it’s the mix CD’s we used to burn, or the Friday evenings renting VHS tapes for our movie nights, or maybe it’s the way we bonded with technology at the time. This kind of nostalgia will always take us back to that warm feeling of discovering the world.
We at smartzune.com decided to take you with us on a trip down memory lane and share with you all the unforgettable things we had before the 2000s.
1. The golden age of CDs
This extremely low-priced sampler was my first introduction to Dub-music: reggae-vibes, reverb & delay, weird FX & a whole lot of ganja!
As is often the case with this kind of releases, it offers all the big names (Israel Vibration, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, King Tubby & Augustus Pablo) but never their best tracks.The main exception here is Black Uhuru’s “Shine Eye Dub”, a true classic.
For me the biggest discovery was Horace Andy, who I only knew from his work with Massive Attack. To this day he is still one of my favourite rastafari-artists, especially because of his melancholic voice.
So if you’d like to dig a little deeper than Bob Marley, this is a great place to start, but “daily dubbers” probably won’t find anything interesting here…
Go back to an era of incredible stars, fantastic voices, magical melodies, and classic hits. The Golden Age of Pop CD collection is the definitive music collection of the ’50s.
This era had it all: legendary singers, timeless music, great harmonies, plus some of the best love songs of all time. The ’50s was a time of tremendous optimism, and the music had a special way of touching our hearts.
