The gnarliest reggae compilation in Christendom, drawn from the seventies and early-eighties heyday of this Toronto-based label, when it played host to stars like Joe Higgs, Augustus Pablo, Johnny Osbourne and Leroy Sibbles, and home to locals like Pluggy Satchmo and Dill Smith. Raw, twisted, compelling, time-and-again staggering productions by Oswald Creary, in the tradition of his childhood-friend Lloyd Bullwackie Barnes — and Lee Perry and Keith Hudson — but utterly themselves. Rough, tough, mystical roots. Brilliant mastering by Moritz von Oswald. Both formats come in silk-screened sleeves (and the artwork is Will Bankhead’s finest hour). Just awesome. Hotly recommended.
