This compilation of Jimmy Radway productions of the second half of the 1970s finally showcases his great roots reggae classics. Superb vocals by Erroll Dunkley, Desmond Young, Leroy Smart and Hortense Ellis are followed by pertinent Big Youth commentary and melodica (A. Pablo) trombone (V. Gordon) and saxophone (B. Ellis) instrumental workouts.
If the magnificent dub sides of these gems would have been added this compilation would have been an essential purchase but even so it remains a classic.

Pressure Sounds have really excelled themselves with this superb compilation. Unusually for them, it's not the work of any one producer but an apparently random mixture of generally pretty obscure 70s roots reggae material, the only unifying theme being the high quality and deep roots style of most tracks.
Highlights include Ras Ibuna's "Diverse Doctrine", Ricky Storm's "The Way It Is" and Michael Rose's "We Shall Overcome", all of which are accompanied by earth-shaking dub versions, plus fine cuts by Dillinger, Cornell Campbell and a rockers-style dub cut of the great Death In The Arena rhythm by The Mercenaries, but the whole album is of a very high standard.
This is a must for connoisseurs of 70s roots reggae and it's to be hoped that Pressure Sounds' assertion that this is only the first of a series will bear fruit soon - it's one of the best releases of its kind in years.

Yet another brilliant set of tracks from Pressure Sounds.

This is a gem, no self respecting Regggae Fan should be without this. Great tracks from Ras Ibuna "diverse doctrine, I Kong "the way it is" and a rare cut of a well known Cornell Cambell track are just 3 (actually 5 including 2 crucial dubs) reasons why this is top class stuff. Delighted to have found what the Pressure Sounds "theme" tune is and to have two versions. Can't wait for volume 2.
