This collection selects prime tracks from the late '70s/early '80s, showcasing Lowell Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare in prime form. Classic cuts by Sugar Minott, Black Uhuru, and Gregory Isaacs make this set solid. What makes it exceptional, however, is Ini Kamoze's "World A Music," a stellar dubbed cut later sampled by Damian Marley for his "Welcome to Jamrock," and an eight-minute reworking of The Undisputed Truth's "Smiling Faces" by The Tamlins. And if these serious grooves aren‘t enough to draw you in, Sly & Robbie's quirky take on Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" should do the trick.
