Various (mixed by DJ Andy Smith) - Trojan Document
The man who provided Portishead with their samples shows off his music knowledge on this journey through reggae's various sub-genres (Ska, Rocksteady, etc). Interestingly, tracks are presented in roughly chronological order and often a vocal version will appear alongside its dub version (so one can appreciate this precursor to the modern practice of remixing). Andy Smith has also written extensive sleeve notes for Trojan Document, making it a nice guide for newcomers.
