AllMusic Review by

Before RAS records began its massive distribution of reggae, records other than Bob Marley's were often difficult to obtain in U.S. This CD is a solid collection of RAS artists, many of whom became international stars, including Black Uhuru, Inner Circle, and Freddy McGregor. It also contains tracks from underground mainstays Eek-A-Mouse, Tiger, and Yelloman. In a world where reggae compilations are a dime a dozen this one speaks volumes about the strength of the label that put it together.
