AllMusic Review by

This collection of dancehall from the Trojan vaults, recorded in the early '80s, just barely predates dancehall's digital age. Most of the tracks represent solid producers like Bunny Lee, Tad Dawkins, and Roy Cousins. Highlights include songs by Charlie Chaplin ("Entertainer," "One of a Kind"), Dennis Brown ("Unite Brother Man"), Barrington Levy ("Collie Weed"), and Don Carlos ("My Baby Jus Love 1 Man," "Johnnie Big Mouth").
