This is the final two-disc volume in a four-volume set of reggae compilations taken from the vaults of George Phangan influential but frequently overlooked producer who helped to usher in the first phase of the dancehall revolution in the late s and early '80s. Disc one reappropriates the "Sleng Teng" rhythm to interesting effect, removing it from its original Casiotone context and restating it with live instruments; Yellowman and Charlie Chaplin both make good use of the revivified version, while Josey Wales seems to be phoning his performance in.
When the "Stalag 17" rhythm one of the greatest reggae backing tracks ever written appears, however, it seems to fire everyone up, especially Charlie Chaplin -- his "Dance in the Pigs - Mushroom Trail - My Medicine is one of this album's highlights.
Elsewhere Josey Wales updates "Throw Me Talk About Love - George Phang - Power House Selectors Choice Vol. 4 to very fine effect, Sugar Minott turns in five more typically brilliant performances, and Peter Metro quotes Tina Turner extensively and to no obvious purpose. Overall, this collection marks a strong finish to an outstanding series of dancehall reggae compilations.
