AllMusic Review by

This two-disc, 44-track collection may not be the best reggae album ever issued, simply or otherwise, but it does have a pretty impressive artist roster, including early sides by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, the Paragons, Dennis Brown, Jimmy Cliff, the Melodians, Toots & the Maytals, Ken Boothe, and even dancehall-era stars like the late Garnett Silk. Serious reggae fans will probably have a lot of these tracks, but it's the kind of anthology that is bound to have a couple maverick selections that even collectors lack.
