AllMusic Review by

This double-disc set includes many of the major reggae names -- Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Inner Circle, Toots & the Maytals -- but the tracks representing each of them are nowhere near their best (or best-known, for that matter). Even Marley standards like "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Get Up, Stand Up" are covered by Inner Circle and Big Youth, respectively.
