AllMusic Review by

This double CD compilation features some of the key players in 1970s dub reggae, like the toaster I-Roy, the premier rhythm section of Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, and mixers and producers like Prince Jammy, King Tubby, and the maverick sound manipulator Lee Perry. Perry's "Doctor on the Go" uses sound clips from an archaic British TV comedy series, while King Tubby partners with the melodica player Augustus Pablo on the vintage mid-'70s roots reggae of "King Tubby a Ruler Fi Dub" and resurrects both Bob Marley's "Put It On" and Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" for "Rock With I Dub."
