If like me you followed the sonic explorations of Mr Sherwood's throughout the 80s and 90s you will be happy to see some of his works being re-edited. I think the reason On U Sound closed down was because not enough people would buy their music (but everyone and their mums were being inspired by it all the same). I never quite understood why people would not buy some of those awsome plates, judging on the quality and creativity of the production work, and the artists.

Outstanding tracks in this collection include the masterful Autobiography which is a joyously skanking Reggae number, but also the gem Quante Jubila sung by the awsome Prince Far I - and a jewel showcase of the inventivity of Adrian Sherwood's oustanding production skills.

The On U Sound recording studios in Walthamstow, London, and its roster of in-house musicians inspired by the Jamaican studio bands, must have been a buzzing heaven of creativity and this collection proudly proves it. Adrian Sherwood came to create it with a dual Punk and Reggae/dub perpective which shows in the breadth of musics and pathes played on this collection. Get it - you will want to know more about On-U-Sound.
