    Every year or so the Heartbeat label puts out a compilation culled from recent releases, and each one is inevitably a can't-miss affair; Heartbeat 2000 is no exception. Very few reggae labels maintain such a consistent level of musical quality and manage simultaneously to keep the vibe so positive. You've got the masterful Beres Hammond, who delivers a wailing challenge to Babylon on "Try If You Want," a few more late '90s dancehall tunes (from Michael Rose and Everton Blender), a vintage performance of "Try a Little Smile" by the incomparable Marcia Griffiths, Culture's long dubwise excursion entitled "Production Something," and a previously unreleased extended version of "Uncle Charlie" by the Mellotones that incorporates a DJ cut by Dillinger. And that's not to mention other excellent performances by such reggae luminaries as Gregory Issacs, Dennis Brown, Horace Andy (the classic "Mr. Bassie"), and Sugar Minott. Give this one to a friend who doesn't own any reggae; it's a great starting place. ~ Rick Anderson
