AllMusic Review by

There is a bewildering array of Bob Marley collections on the market, and new ones pop up all the time, but they generally are pretty fly-by-night with few track notes and are usually tossed together with little regard for either chronology or stylistic coherence. This one is one of those, with a mix of Wailers self-productions, some as early as 1967, a couple of Mortimo Planno productions from 1968, and several tracks produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry from 1970 and 1971. There's nothing wrong with the music -- it's fine, particularly the Perry material -- but this set doesn't really show much thought or design and Marley and the Wailers certainly deserve plenty of both of those things.
