AllMusic Review by

Sometimes it seems like there are more Bob Marley collections than there are drops of water in the sea, most of them recycling the same pre-Island Records Jamaican tracks in countless different configurations. This one mixes in sides produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry ("African Herbsman," "Duppy Conqueror") with some Leslie Kong tracks ("Soul Shakedown Party") and some Wailers self-productions ("Hammer"), and while what's here sounds fine, even great, nothing about this collection distinguishes it from dozens of other sets just like it.
