AllMusic Review by

Throughout 2001 and 2002, the Dressed to Kill label issued a series of reggae compilations under the generic Reggae and Ska Twin Pack banner. These sets bundled together budget-level compilations of two artists and sold them for the price of one. While these quick-and-cheap overviews of the respective artists are a decent way to check out reggae legends, there is just no escaping the fact that they are, well, quick and cheap. You get what you pay for. The packaging is hideous -- each installment is a real eyesore -- and all of these artists have better points of entry available. If in need of a quick fix, these'll do. Otherwise, stay away. This set spotlights Toots and the Maytals and the Maytones. On the Toots and the Maytals' disc, "Bam Bam," "What's On Your Mind," "Never You Change," "Tell Me the Reason," and 11 more are featured. On the Maytones' disc, "Billy Goat," "Boat to Zion," "Baby Give Me the Right Loving," "Me Na Tek You Lick," and a dozen more are included.
