Those searching for Gregory Isaacs "rootsiest" album will definitely find it here. Apparently, reading the liner notes, this was Blood & Fire's intention also. So whereas on Isaacs' previous LP "Extra Classic", the split was about half and half "ghetto commentaries" and "syrupy love songs", here it's more 3/4s in favour of the cultural material. That said, stylistically the music is interchangeable between the two subjects. The music on openers "Sacrifice" and "Storm" is breezy and cheery in a major-key, and sung in that smooth-but-yearning voice, so that if you weren't listening to lyrics like "I was given as a sacrifice / To build a black man's hell an' a white man's paradise", you might think this was a love-ballad!!

The exception to the rule is "Slavemaster" which is an overwhelmingly powerful, intense and weighty militant dread anthem. This song justifies purchase alone. Blood & Fire have chosen to put the deejay version of "Slavemaster" by Dillinger straight after the vocal, which seems intrusive right in the middle of the original LP.

As per-their standard, Blood & Fire have also sought out contemporary bonus tracks, including a couple of extended songs with their prerequisite dubs.

For any fan of Gregory, this is unmissable. This is the original album plus a couple of worthwhile bonus tracks. This comes from the time when Gregory's voice was one of the finest in reggae. A great bunch of songs, coupled with excellent production make this one of the best of Gregory's numerous albums. Standout tracks include a great interpretation of 'Storybook Children' and the driving production of 'Handcuff'.
