Reggae Anthology Bobby Digital – X-tra Wicked

Digital B became the ruling production house in the musical revolution that swept through Jamaica from the mid-80s onwards with a lethal selection of dancehall weapons and chartbusting reggae hits. X-Tra Wicked gathers many of his best-ever productions from those heady times when specialist stores were awash with 7″ singles, freshly arrived from Jamaica, and reggae music was once more on the rise.

The 40 track 2CD set comes with a bonus DVD telling the Bobby Digital story from the perspective of people who were there; King Jammy, Bunny Lee, Cleveland ‘Clevie’ Browne, Dean Fraser, Sizzla and others. Directed by Sherkan, the documentary runs 55 minutes.

Reggae Anthology Bobby Digital – Serious Times

Producer Bobby ‘Digital’ Dixon breathed new life into “live” roots reggae with a succession of groundbreaking releases by Garnett Silk, Sizzla and Morgan Heritage that helped restore ‘Rasta music’ to its former glory.

A believer that good music is delivered from the heart, Bobby still releases the occasional batch of songs by artists like Kabaka Pyramid, Iba Mahr, Lymie Murray, Chezidek, Richie Spice and Richie Stephens, confirming his place at the forefront of the genre in the digital age.

This highly desirable three disc set collects together some of the biggest of those big game-changers alongside the hits that secured Bobby Digital’s reputation as a modern-day master of Jamaican music. “Serious Times” contains the best of the producer’s roots reggae and lovers rock catalog.

Both packages include liner notes written by reggae historian John Masouri.
