4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely stuff! 13 Feb 2004
By P. Bryant VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Full of pumped up ska rhythms, here's a shed-load of extremely obscure and wonderful 30-year-old Jamaican music, and I only wish they made it as good now as they did then. You can buy this one with a big smile on your face. You're not going to be disappointed. This reggae is from the period just before Rasta took over, so there's no moaning about Babylon, just great jumping dance songs and instrumentals which will get you turning up the volume and opening the window so the whole street can hear. And if they did, none of your neighbours would complain, they'd just come round to find out what great stuff you're listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ska stuff 31 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is worth buying for Bush Doctor alone. A brilliant fast blues/jazz-type piano played over a pumping bass rhythm and driving reggae rhythm. This is an instrumental of Peter Tosh' record of the same name - but that's what the Music Doctors did par excellence. It was also used as the backing track for Madness' Don't Quote Me On That. Warefare is also brilliant. I have both in vinyl and was really pleased to find them on CD. Reggae in your jeggae a lot with this one...

5.0 out of 5 stars Put your braces together, and your boots on your feet.... 19 May 2003
By Villa Boy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
....Skinhead Moonstomp isn't actually on this collection, but that is no great loss since it is available on so many other compilations.
There is a wealth of the rare, the obscure and downright fantastic on this 40 track double CD that will bring back many memories for those around in the early days of reggae. From the opening talkover, thumping bass and Hammond organ of Bunny Lee's 'Warfare', right through to the closing bars of Pama Dice's 'Your Boss DJ' you'll be tapping your feet and racking your brains with 'What other song used that riddim'.
There are a lot of original riddims here, The Corporation's 'Walking Thru Jerusalem', later to be immortalised by Tiger's 'Guilty' and Dandy's 'Shake Me, Wake Me', which became 'Reggae In Your Jeggae'. There are also some interesting re-uses of backing tracks. Hortense Ellis's 'My Last Date' done to Ken Boothe's 'Dark End Of The Street' and Bunny Lee's 'Annie Pama', an instrumental version of the Maytals 'Monkey Man' to name a few.
Plenty of other interesting tunes here to, especially the wonderful rendition of 'When The Saints Go Marching In' by Tommy McCook.
All in All a 'must have' for lovers of early reggae/

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare SKINHEAD REGGAE for those who still wanna dance! 25 Sep 2003
By Modbeat1964 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I just bought this here CD and what a great find. Ultimately, all the TROJAN RECORD box set type releases that have been flooding the binds at your fave record store are worth every penny. This here CD is just another testimony to the greatness of the original sounds from Jamaica. If you are a real follower of the original SKINHEAD sounds of the late 60's, then buy this here CD and you will not be disappointed one bit. Plus, you will gain some of the rarer tracks from the original era. Check out the SKINHEAD box set from Trojan, as well. Buy them all. The RUDE BOY box set is another great find. So what you waiting for, if you love the original sounds and tried of all that ... retro or neo stuff, then pick this here CD up and quick.

I'll just get to the point, if you love skinhead reggae you need this in your collection. Lots of gems here (like the Hippy Boys) so catch the Spirit of '69, get your boots and braces on and get stomping!
5.0 out of 5 stars WAIT FOR PRICE TO DROP 22 July 2012
By Johnny's Sound System - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
GREAT ALBUM. I challenge you to find these on any other cd, these are songs trojan doesnt even want you to hear hence why the price is over $300. and to the sellers who sell this for more than its worth ($15.00) shame on you, a true disgrace to reggae music and reggae culture. To try and scam fellow reggae lovers is a travesty.

I bought this for $11. wait for the price to drop.

Buy It cheap folks dont get scammed by these inflated prices on reggae music.

I purchased this as a gift for a friend. She LOVED it! She said she almost downloaded it online, but that she was much happier with the hard copy. Great find.
