As any traveller knows, the best and most honest conversations take place during car rides. So when journalist Frank Langfitt wanted to learn more about the real China, he started driving a cab - and discovered a country amid seismic political and economic change. The Chinese economic boom, with its impact on the environment, global trade, and the tech industry, has been one of the most important stories of the twenty-first century. Yet few realise that the boom is largely over, and that the new reality in China is unequal growth, political anxiety and a newly empowered strongman president. In order to understand this new world, Frank Langfitt offered the citizens of Shanghai a simple deal: a conversation in exchange for a free taxi ride. Rides turned into follow-up interviews, shared meals and even a wedding invitation. In this adventurous book, we get to know an array of quirky yet representative characters like Beer Horse, the pushy dealer who sells Langfitt his used car; Rocky, a stylishly dressed migrant worker who loves John Denver music; and Xiao Chen, who moved his family to Hawaii to escape China´s oppressive education system but was unable to get out of the country himself. Unfolding over the course of several years, The Shanghai Free Taxi is a sensitive and eye-opening book about a rapidly changing country.

1-CD Digipak (4-seitig) mit 24-seitigem Booklet, 8 Einzeltitel. Gesamtspieldauer ca. 58 Minuten Die berühmteste Rhythm Section in der Geschichte des Reggae. Sly & Robbie sind die einzigen international bekannten Reggae-Musiker. Sie haben u.a. mit Joan Armatrading, Joe Cocker, Ian Dury, Bob Dylan, Serge Gainsborough, Herbie Hancock und Mick Jagger gearbeitet. Einzigartige Aufnahmen, eine besondere Mischung aus Reggae, US-amerikanischem Rhythm ‘n’ Blues und Soul. Zusammenstellung mit Aufnahmen des jamaikanischen Taxi-Labels von 1978-87. Gelungene Reggae-Versionen von Soul-Songs, mit denen Little Willie John, Al Wilson, Brook Benton, Tony Joe White, The Delfonics, The Impressions und Marvin Gaye zuvor große Erfolge feierten, gesungen u.a. von Tinga Stewart, Marcia Griffth und Delroy Wilson CD-Zusammenstellung von dem britischen Reggaehistoriker, Autor und Produzenten Steve Barrow. • CD im Digipak mit 24-seitigem Booklet und ausführlichen Linernotes von Reggae-Experte Noel Hawks. Die Titel auf dieser Zusammenstellung belegen nachdrücklich das umfangreiche Verständnis, das Lowell ‘Sly’ Dunbar & Robert ‘Robbie’ Shakespeare für die Wurzeln von Reggae, amerikanischem Rhythm ‘n’ Blues und Soul besitzen. Ihre Versionen von zeitgenössischen und klassischen Soul-Songs zeigen Sly & Robbie in bester Form bei ihren Interpretationen von Little Willie Johns Fever , Al Wilsons Show & Tell, Tony Joe Whites Rainy Night In Georgia (nach der Soul-Coverversion von Brook Benton), The Delfonics’ Don’t Break Your Promise , The Impressions’ You Must Believe Me , The Spinners’ Could It Be I’m Falling In Love und von einem Doppelpack mit Reggae-Versionen von Marvin Gayes Sexual Healing und Inner City Blues . Die Songs werden ausdrucksstark und voller Feeling von verschiedenen Sängern interpretiert und profitieren von Sly & Robbies herausragender Rhythmusarbeit, die bei den hier veröffentlichten Langversionen besonders hervorsticht. Seit mehr als vierzig Jahren haben die beiden dermaßen viel zur Entwicklung des Reggae beigetragen, dass sie getrost als dessen Rückgrat bezeichnet werden können. Ohne zu übertreiben können wir festhalten, Reggae hätte ohne Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare niemals eine derart große Bedeutung in der Populären Musik erlangt. Mögen sie uns noch lange erhalten bleiben… Normalerweise kennt am sie schlicht als Sly & Robbie. Doch die beiden meisterlichen Musiker sind auch als The Dynamic Duo, The Rhythm Twins und sogar – gelegentlich – als Drumbar und Basspeare bekannt. Die Rolle von Begleitmusikern war genau jene… nämlich im Hintergrund zu bleiben. Doch Sly & Robbie sind die einzigen Reggae-Musiker, deren Namen auch international bekannt und respektiert sind. Die Architekten und Baumeister jamaikanischer Musik haben stets die Grenzen dessen ausgelotet, was Eingang in Reggae Music finden konnte, und was nicht. Doch obwohl sie intensiv mit internationalen Musikstars wie Joan Armatrading, Joe Cocker, Ian Dury, Bob Dylan, Serge Gainsborough, Gwen Guthrie, Herbie Hancock, Mick Jagger oder Grace Jones zusammengearbeitet haben, blieben sie stets den Wurzeln ihrer Musik in Kingstons umtriebiger Reggae-Szene verbunden.
