AllMusic Review by

For its take on legendary reggae toaster Eek-a-Mouse, Greensleeves’ MOST WANTED series focuses on the singjayer’s most heralded years. For a period in the early-1980’s, Eek-a-Mouse supplied roughly an album per year of hypnotic, sun-soaked reggae, breathing some much-needed light in the wake of multiple tragedies. This compilation focuses on the 12-inch versions of many of the artist’s greatest hits of the era, unearthing some tracks previously available only on vinyl. Included on MOST WANTED are such hits as “Ganja Smuggling,” “Wa-Do-Dem,” and “Noah’s Ark.”
