AllMusic Review by Steve Leggett

Sometimes it seems like there are more Bob Marley collections than there are drops of water in the sea, most of them recycling the same pre-Island Records Jamaican tracks in countless different configurations. This extremely brief ten-song set one mixes in sides produced by Lee "Scratch" Perry ("African Herbsman") with some Leslie Kong tracks ("Soul Shakedown Party"), and while what's here sounds fine, even great, nothing about this collection distinguishes it from dozens of other sets just like it. Oh, and "Don't Rock My Boat" is mislabeled as "Don't Rock the Boat" here, which a small but important distinction.
