AllMusic Review by

Ras designed Ras Portraits as a concise introduction to a particular artist's recordings for the label. Since the information behind Ras releases is always shady, it's difficult to discern the origin of tracks on Ras Portraits; Live & Learn is a collection of previously available instructional and inspirational music from various Ras artists. Among the featured tracks are Barrington Levy's "Teach Me Culture," the Mighty Diamonds' "Reggae-Lution," Dennis Brown's "Hold Tight," the Wailing Souls' "Them a Fret," Beres Hammond's "Some Girls Are Trouble" and Al Campbell's "Forward Natty."
