Various Artists The Channel One Story
- Words: Vivian Host
- Label: VP
If college kids spent less time listening to Sublime and more time listening to the catalog of legendary reggae label Channel One, they would be a lot smarter. They would know what to do with bags of Mexican shake thanks to Frankie Jones' "Don't Smoke The Seed." The Meditations would teach them about the complexities of male/female relationships on "Woman Is Like A Shadow." And they would learn about the dangers of doing too much blow thanks to Dillinger's rambling shaky drug rant "Cokane In My Brain." The Channel One Story presents the late '70s/early '80s essentials from one of Jamaica's most prominent production houses in a collection that's as appropriate for the rookie reggae fanatic as it is for the rockers rhythm completist.
