As one of the originators of the "combination" stylee, Gussie Clarke has relased lots of classic tracks, "Great Kings of Africa" being one of my all time favourites. Coming from the heydays of "computerised" reggae, this compilation collects a bunch of hits from Music works including "Pirate's Anthem", "John Law" and "Holding On". Most reggae fans will recognise these tracks and will certainly agree : there's no compromise, no fillers here, strictly dance hall floor fillers !
