AllMusic Review by

The three disc Works of Jah does a fair job of cobbling together a mixed bag of roots reggae and lovers rock tracks into a workable whole, although the choice of sequencing is somewhat baffling. But don't fear, there are dozens of great tracks here, including Gregory Isaacs' gorgeous "Lonely Man," the Heptones' gospel harmony take on "Pretty Little Cottage," and the syncopated version of "Rivers of Babylon" (the classic Melodians song) by Don Carlos.
