I am familiar with this album since long and love it but have never owned the Vinyl or CD, just a bad needledrop I found on the Internet long ago.

When I saw that this title was finally released on CD, I bought it and had high expectations of an improved sound quality.
What I discovered is that this CD is actually a transfer from Vinyl (aka needledrop), with a bad/mediocre cartridge/stylus.

This CD/Needledrop sounds even worse than the one I already had!

I hounted down an original mint Vinyl pressing on Discogs, and did my own transfer with my Rega P3-24, AT-440MLa cart.
The result is light years better than the CD!

My question is: If for some reason a Vinyl transfer is the only way, then atleast do it right!
I will only keep the CD for the bonus tracks, which by the way sounds very good.

One of the Best... 19 Nov. 2009
By Madrok - Published on
...reggae albums of all time. In the militant style, a very minimalist quartet of drums, bass, piano and guitar. Superb singing and playing. Ini's voice is quite high pitched, but strong. Just prior to Sly's going over technical with the Syn Drums in my opinion.

I think Ini is kind of to blame for this album not being re-released properly by Island/Mango. I have no idea how good or bad this release is in terms of sound quality. The Island Mini-LP is the best 5-star release. I've heard excellent mastered versions, and terribly distorted ones of these tracks, some even in mono (3-stars). The former include the brilliant extended dub versions mixed by Paul "Groucho" Smykle, which raise this to a 5 star classic.

NICE SLY & ROBBIE! 22 Dec. 2007
By Soul Bird - Published on
Verified Purchase
Ina Kamoze's great vocals on his 1st album has done justice to this impressive sounding remastered classic. The clean recording with sweet vocals by Ina Kamoze and Sly & Robbie's great backing of drums and bass is a joy to hear. This groundbreaking reggae album's a keeper!

Poor Quality 16 Aug. 2010
By David Valentine - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Iki Kamoze did good stuff back in the day. This CD compilation would have been a good collectors item for fans of old school reggae. However the audio quality is horrible. The first three songs are flat, as if they were reproduced from a cassette recording of 15 years ago. This CD should be given away free of cost as a sample.

If you're a fan, you'll enjoy the music 4 Mar. 2012
By Richard Barr - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I purchased this CD for a friend who had given up looking for it in local stores. The audio quality is fine for the most part, but the vocal on some songs sound as though he is singing through a tin cup. Despite this observation, if you're a fan, you'll enjoy the music.
