"The story of Rob Smith and Ray Mighty, more commonly known as Smith & Mighty, began long before the world became fascinated with Bristol as the central source of the best downtempo and drum & bass the electronic music world has seen to date. It was the innovative precedent that Smith & Mighty brought to Bristol's music community, helping launch artists such as Massive Attack, Roni Size, Portishead and Tricky into the international spotlight. Due to a major label contract dispute, much of their early work was previously unavailable to their fans. This collection is an excellent sampling of their unique ability to combine elements of dub, reggae, R&B, hip hop, and drum & bass into a seamless mix ready to rock any dancefloor around the world. Retrospective collects classic tracks from as far back as 1989's 'Wishing on A Star,' which perfectly exemplifies their echo chamber experiments developed during their work with Adrian Sherwood's On U Sound collective in the mid 80s. With classic tracks from their last three artist albums as well as singles previously unavailable on CD, this collection is sure to please the fans and convert the previously unconverted to utter obsession."
