AllMusic Review by

This release is out of time and place. Roots reggae dominated the scene in '70s Jamaica and it would have been understandable if the gentle soul-folk of this record had simply vanished in the haze. Lucky for listeners, it didn't. The topics are familiar to students of the isle and its art -- stop the violence, love, when will we be free -- but the delivery is softer, demanding that one stop and listen carefully. Do, and you'll be glad you did.
