AllMusic Review by

Collector's Collection, Vol. 1 is a compilation of rarities and obscurities from Sugar Minott's lengthy career. Most of the songs are outtakes from the late '70s and early '80s, when Minott was inventing the form of reggae that became known as dancehall. While these aren't the songs that defined the genre, the grooves will be pleasantly familiar to anyone well-acquainted with Minott's released material and, for them, this collection is essential. Casual fans can safely pass it by, however.
