A great introduction to the essential Blood & Fire catalogue for a mid-price only. The U.K. Blood & Fire label is known and respected for a high quality series of roots reissues from the likes of Keith Hudson, Horace Andy, King Tubby and Yabby You. These artists and others of their stature are available on this excellent selection. Anyone who possesses the first seven releases of this label will find nothing new on this sampler. However when you're not familiar with Blood & Fire releases and if you're looking for the real thing you're going to wind up wanting every album this sampler samples from. In the main a dub album with a handful of vocal cuts this is roots without any apology !
