This 26 track compilation set from Trojan features many of the best-known recordings from 1962 formed Pioneers. They have had several hits for numerous producers (Leslie Kong, Joe Gibbs, Jimmy Cliff) and achieved British chart success in 1969 with "Longshot kick de bucket" and in 1971 with "Let your yeah be yeah". Overviewing the heydays of The Pioneers (late sixties, early seventies) this album is certainly worthwhile checking out.
