The album features classic tracks from DJ greats Dennis Alcapone, Lone Ranger, Prince Jazzbo, King Stitt alongside super-rare tracks from artists such as Bobby Jackie, Jah Jesco and Little Joe all recorded under Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd's supervision at the legendary recording studio and record label. Musical backing comes from the legendary in-house bands -- The Skatalites, The Sound Dimension, Soul Vendors and Soul Defenders -- who provide the classic Studio One rhythms. So influential in the history of reggae. As well as eighteen killer tracks the album comes with new sleevenotes by Steve Barrow (Blood and Fire/Rough Guide to Reggae) and photography by Dennis Morris making this another essential Studio One reggae release for connoisseurs of reggae and newcomers alike."
