AllMusic Review by

Twelve dub cuts spanning the mid-'70s to the mid-'80s, licensed from the Heartbeat, Greensleeves, and Blood & Fire labels. The range is too perfunctory, and the liner notes too brief, for this to qualify as a benchmark retrospective of the style. It does have cuts by some of the major exponents of dub (Scientist, Lee Perry, King Tubby's, and Augustus Pablo), as well as dubbafied versions of songs by vocal acts like Culture, Joe Gibbs, and Black Uhuru.
