Superb live recordings from the 10th annual "Reggae On The Rocks", made at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on August 10, 1996. These recordings give a real good impression of this reggae event and even manage to capture the "rootical vibes". Of course there's nothing here that long time reggae fans won't already know and love, for all artists included on this disc have established themselves a household name in roots reggae music. However the live interpretations of these well-known songs sound great to us. Without exception everyone delivers a highly inspired and energetic contribution, which makes one long for more.
