AllMusic Review by

You're not likely to go wrong with anything the mighty Leslie Kong laid his hands on. This master producer gave the work of such greats as the Wailers, the Melodians and the Maytals a gritty immediacy that makes them the best reggae ever recorded. This compilation, spanning the years 1969-71, features great tracks by the aforementioned bands, as well as the Pioneers on a funky "Trouble Deh A Bush" and Ken Boothe skanking easy on "Keep My Love From Fading." This is steady rockin' stuff.
