This double CD collection brings together many of the rarer material -produced by Lee Perry and Joe Gibbs - recorded by the group as a whole and as individuals. Lots of versions, answer versions, alternate takes, many of which are available for the first time on CD. A 40 page booklet gives extended background information & pictures. This compilation gives a splendid insight in the development of The Wailers during the late sixties and early seventies. A crucial collection !
