Format: Audio CD
Johnny Clarke's work with producer Bunny Lee and the Aggrovators band dominated the Jamaican dancehalls and airwaves throughout 1974 and '75. Riding the vibrant new 'flying cymbals' reggae style that drummer Carlton "Santa" Davis developed, Clarke voiced dozen of songs for the producer in this period, and each one was a major hit. The best of these tracks feature on this compilation - a brilliant collection of 'strictly roots & culture' reggae music, presented in showcase fashion with mighty dub versions (mixed by King Tubby and Prince Jammy) following the vocal cuts.

The enduring Rastafarian anthem with the irresistible Egyptian-style bass line, "NONE SHALL ESCAPE THE JUDGEMENT" opens the CD; the first recording on which Santa used his patented 'sawing', disco-inspired 'flying' cymbal technique, and Jamaica's 'song of the year 1974'. The track's popularity led Clarke to record two more vocal versions on the same rhythm, "JOSHUAH'S WORDS" and "JAH JAH BLESS JOSHUAH"; which both detail specific political aspects of Michael Manley's PNP government: gun laws and democratic socialism.
The flying cymbals rhythm is also right at the heart of tracks like the joyously exuberant "MOVE OUT OF BABYLON RASTAMAN" (there is also a startling alternate cut on this rhythm, "COMMERCIAL LOCKS", on which Clarke and deejay Dillinger berate a host of Chinese and white "false rastas"); and the intense "DON'T TROUBLE TROUBLE" which has an Eastern, 'snake charming' horn motif and another Dillinger snipe in the intro, this time directed straight at Jacob Miller's head.

I can't begin to go into the level of detail that the previous review shows, but this is a truly excellent album at a bargain price (around £5 at the time of writing). It's a great mix of roots tunes and their dubs, so is especially good for people who prefer one to the other or just like a bit of variety.

The quality is fantastic throughout and Tubby in particular is in sparkling form on the dubs.

I was in a record shop recently browsing the reggae section and someone asked me what he could get because he was bored of Bob Marley. He wanted something heavier and more energetic; I instantly told to get this and some Toots & The Maytals, and, given the remit, I totally stand by that choice.

Great selection that any roots or dub fan needs in their life.
