AllMusic Review by

A random sampling of a half-dozen early recording by the Maytals, sounding none too impressive, and augmented by the presence of the Blues Busters (who, not surprisingly, sound more like a Bluebeat group) and the Ethiopians. The highlight is "Simmer Down," one of a pair of cuts by Byron Lee & The Dragonaires, a delightfully infectious piece of music and one of the earliest songs ever written by Bob Marley. The annotation is minimal, and there is no discographical information.
