TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 20 November 2012
A very good compilation of so called `Boss Reggae' that comes with a nice 12 page colour booklet that has good liner notes by Ian McCann, label scans and record covers. Overall the sound quality is good (sadly, 1 or 2 have slight distortion and in parts tape warping). There's a good mix of tracks, a nice blend of classics, more familiar tracks and new to cd (18 tracks making their cd debut).

Cd 1. 1968 - 1969 (56.50mins). The key tracks here are the excellent `Sufferer' by The Kingstonians and the fierce `Come into my parlour' by The Bleechers (these are main stays of any reggae compilation worth its corn). If you don't own these 2 tracks already they are must haves. New favourites to my ears are - `How long' by Pat Kelly and the fantastic love song `Strange' by Dobby Dobson. This cd finishes with a rare version of Harry J All Stars classic `Liquidator'. Overall 8/10.

Cd 2. 1969 - 1970 (63.50mins). Opens with `Moon Hop' by Derrick Morgan, the next track is the recently discovered in the vaults `Red, red wine' (extended version - 5.57mins) by Tony Tribe. `Reggae in your Jeggae' by Dandy is a familiar classic. Other goodies are `Too experienced' by Owen Gray and `My Love & I' by Millie. Some of the later tracks aren't my bag - except `No more heartaches' by The Coloured Raisons, not as good as cd 1. Overall 7/10.

Overall, a great value for money 2 disc set with lots of goodies to discover. Recommended, also check out the recently released `Mod Ska' & `The Producers' cd's by Trojan.

A great collection of tracks from a seminal period for Reggae before Geneses fans discovered Bob Marley.
