AllMusic Review by

Music Club continued its fine tradition of great collections at equally fine prices with The Prime of John Holt, not the most exhaustive disc out there, but certainly a solid compilation of reggae's sweetest singer. Beginning with his stone-cold classic "Stick By Me," The Prime of John Holt delivers 20 tracks from Holt's prime of the early- to mid-'70s, including "The Tide Is High," "Riding for a Fall," and his version of "A Love I Can Feel" (originally by rock's sweetest falsetto, Smokey Robinson).
