Vintage Music is a compilation series released by MCA Records in 1986. There were 10 volumes when released on vinyl and cassette but the compact disc versions put together two at a time, so there was a total of five CD's in the series: 1 & 2, 3 & 4, and so on. This series was remastered by Steve Hoffman from the best available master recordings, with a few songs taken from versions that had not been heard before. Notable is the version of Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild" used here.

Genre: hard rock, electronic, hip-hop

Mistaken Identity is the 1996 album by guitarist Vernon Reid. Known as the founder of the black rock band Living Colour, this album is not only filled with hard rock songs but it also has electronic and hip-hop qualities, due to this project being co-produced with Prince Paul, along with Teo Macero. Reid is helped out on this album by Masque, who were Don Byron, DJ Logic, Leon Gruenbaum, Curtis Watts, and Hank Schroy. This was released by 550 Music via Epic Records.

Facing Vernon Reid's first solo album with expectations of finding another Living Colour album would be a very wrong thing to do. Here is proof that the split was not caused by profane reasons like personal differences or even wanting to earn more money, but by at least one musician striving to step into different musical territories. For Reid, this partly means going back to his roots in jazz and funk.

Mistaken Identity is anything but a fast food album; it comes along as quite of a challenge to the unprepared listener. Large parts of it are instrumental; something such as a simple melody is nowhere to be found. Only repeated listens start to reveal hooks in the complex soundscapes. The most accessible tracks, like "CP Time" or "Saint Cobain", are characterized by a groundwork of percussions, strong bass, rap vocals, and Reid showing his muscles on the guitar, almost the only instances reminding of his past with Living Colour. Other tracks like "Lighnin'" have a prominent blues feel, with beautifully whining guitars, yet others are almost pure jazz. Another characteristic of Mistaken Identity is lots of creatively used samples. As so often occurs, the names of producers give a clear key to an album: besides Vernon Reid himself, these are Teo Macero, who has previously worked with jazz greats like Miles Davis, and Prince Paul, who produced De La Soul's masterpiece 3 Feet High And Rising.

Vernon Reid's Mistaken Identity may catch some buyers on the wrong foot, and will most certainly be less commercially successful than the platinum-selling Living Colour albums. But listeners taking their time to explore it will be richly rewarded. Here is a remarkable album made by highly gifted and dedicated individuals, perfectly produced, with new things to be discovered in every listen. Time will tell how it will hold up, but chances are that we are witnesses of what might once be considered an essential release by many.

Genre: electronic, dub

Vŏdû 155 is the 1994 self-titled debut album by Vŏdû 155, consisting of Haitian brothers Lionel and Constance Bernard. Produced by Bill Laswell, this album was released on Mango Records, a subsidiary of Island.
Haitian brothers who moved to New York as teenagers and quickly immersed themselves in the city's melting pot of musical influences, Vŏdû 155's Lionel and Constance Bernard are very conscious of and true to the spirituality of their roots, but are by no means limited by them. Just as Haitian voodoo is a hybrid of African tribal beliefs influenced by Spanish Catholicism and other forms of Christianity, Vŏdû 155's music is a creative mixture of African rhythms, Haitian patois, Jamaican reggae/dancehall, and American funk and hip-hop. On songs like "Vodu Funkadelic," "Zaka," and the autobiographical "Boom Boom Bip," the band (which includes bassist/producer Bill Laswell, guitarist Nicky Skopelitis, and reggae legend Sly Dunbar on drums) combines their disparate influences in an original manner that renders their sound virtually incomparable. Although its broad reach occasionally exceeds its grasp, Vŏdû 1555's debut is an innovative album that deserves to be heard by world music fusion fans and more adventurous hip-hop heads alike.
