Compilation of the Week

Compilation of the Week

We all know that David Rodigan – DJ and being the occasional 6 Music presenter – knows his onions when it comes to everything Reggae, but our compilation of the week looks to expand the life story behind the original superstar DJ. Calling it ‘Masterpiece’ is obviously a huge statement of intent. It started with classic Rock and Soul tracks - anything which has James Brown & The Famous Flames’ I Love You Porgy on it you know is just going to be an incredible collection of music – before progressing into more familiar territory, with the likes of The Abyssinians "Black Man's Pride", described as “one the greatest records ever written about racial strife”. As David says so himself: "The songs that made reggae music truly great, internationally recognized and deeply loved were the songs that spoke out against injustice.”
