AllMusic Review by

Jimmy Cliff's best work was done with legendary Jamaican producer Leslie Kong in the late '60s, and this collection has several key tracks from that period, including "Wonderful World, Beautiful People," "Many Rivers to Cross," and "Vietnam." There are hits packages with these same songs and much better annotation out there, however, making this a dubious starting point for newcomers to this fine singer and writer, and longtime fans will have all of these tracks already.
