Just received the Darker than Blue LP today, as I've benn looking for it for years. Nos that I have it here on my turntable I'm completely disapointed as the quality of the sound is so poor. If you like music with soul you need this comp. Every track is a winner, from the organ fueled funk of Boris Gardiner's "Ghetto Funk", to Ken Boothe's peerless cover version of Syl Johnson's "Is It Because I'm Black", and the skanking version of "I'm Your Puppet" by Jimmy London, this is reggae soul at it's very best.

Darker Than Blue however, has a distinct advantage over its predecessor. As it is not tied to the output of any one particular label, it manages to come up with a selection that's broader in scope and more diverse in sound. Following a series of love songs, Darker Than Blue delivers another series of excellent reality themes. Among them are the Curtis Mayfield song that titles the set (performed by Lloyd Charmers) and Timmy Thomas' "Why Can't We Live Together?," presented in discomix form by Tinga Stewart and the Revolutionaries.

Just received the Darker than Blue LP today, as I've benn looking for it for years. Nos that I have it here on my turntable I'm completely disapointed as the quality of the sound is so poor. I used to listen to the CD version that was really correct. But hell this Vinyle pressing is rubish. I suspect this is not an original copy. Is there anyone here that has the Vinyle copy and can tell me if the quality is ok...just to compare. Thanks guys
These prices are ridiculous, and have been for years... REISSUE PLEASE!!!
I'm with you. If there is 3000 of a pressing, and there are more than a dozen for sale at any given time, there is no reason for the prices to be this high.
Indeed, and I've never understood why... Not like it's packed with rare gems... Plain ridiculous.
One of the best soulful reggae collections out there - essential.
Honest Jon's have this back in WITHOUT the cover for a fraction of the price here.
You can get the second plate only at honest jon's again (available online too!)
Is it possible to buy it online? could not find it...
wonderful, joyous. extremely funky, dubby, roots reggae, well produced. 15 of the 18 tracks are georgeous. some incredible cover versions (or is this the original?).
Wonderful, joyous, life-affirming music. If you like music with soul you need this comp. Every track is a winner, from the organ fueled funk of Boris Gardiner's "Ghetto Funk", to Ken Boothe's peerless cover version of Syl Johnson's "Is It Because I'm Black", and the skanking version of "I'm Your Puppet" by Jimmy London, this is reggae soul at it's very best. Highly recommended.
