This is a very reasonable effort to capture the variety of Bunny Lee's work, covering a significant amount of material, from bluebeat to ska and on to revive and Rockers.
Most of the album is made up of fairly easily available, but intense material nonetheless--tunes such as the sublime "Blessed Are The Meek" by Slim Smith, Pat Kelly's "Queen Majesty" and The Mighty Diamonds' "Jah Bless The Dreadlocks" are high points.
There are a few fairly obscure tracks here amongst the sometimes over familiar tunes : Ken Booth's version of "Train Is Coming" is thunderous, confident militancy, equalling Big Youth and Barrington Spence's inspired cuts of the tune.
"Natty Bongo" by Owen Gray is a pounding revive/Rockers tune and not easily available elsewhere. John Holt's "Till I'm Gone" is a curiosity, featuring as it does a hammering, spacious steppers beat but with anachronistic lover's lyrics.
The only reservation with this album is the pointless inclusion yet again of tunes like "Better Must Come", "Ali Baba" and "Satta", tunes which have appeared on countless compilations before this one. One has to wonder, what could possibly be the point of including them yet again?
So, overall it's a fine, yet not totally remarkable album -- It is a shame Jet Star couldn't have dug up some rarities and discomixes for inclusion here, which would have made this an indispensible purchase.
As it is, it makes a very good purchase for a buyer looking for an introduction to the varied work of this great producer.
