"As I approach the gates of Zion I can hear the choir singing" sings Johnny Clarke in "None Shall Escape The Judgement". The sound is poetry in motion, a dream fulfilled. Bunny Lee, the hitmaker, makes the best but the best Jamaican rhythms. The first three tracks are Johnny`s biggest hits to date. For me they have all that is good about Jamaican music. Fluidity of movement, a subject matter that is trendy and uniquely Jamaican, and very momorable and singable melodies and lyrics. They make you want to move and sing. Johnny Has a good voice and Bunny`s studio musicians are the best at their trade. Listen to the guitar and organ riff in unison, the flying cymbals, and the wonderful bass playing. Gutsy music, which cannot be fully appreciated outside Jamaica. A few of the tracks here sound like fillers -- which is a waste, because Trojan have at least two tracks --"Everyday Wandering" and "Julie Don`t You Know" -- that, although they weren`t produced by Bunny Lee, might have been included.
