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 ("Kaya," "Soul Rebel") with some Leslie Kong tracks ("Stop the Train," which is actually a Peter Tosh number), and some Wailers self-productions ("How Many Times"), and while what's here sounds fine, even great, nothing about this collection distinguishes it from dozens of other sets just like it.
