Big Youth and producer Gussie Clarke, both barely out of their teens, shook the reggae world with this new DJ style: streetwise, tough and half-chanted. Third part of the equation are the great rhythms used i.e Lloyd Parks' Slaving for the title track, KC White's No no no (Concrete jungle) or Horace Andy's Skylarking (The killer). Big Youth would sometimes equal but never surpass this historic debut album in his long career. Remember none of these tracks appear on the 3cd Natty universal dread compilation so buy this one, a true reggae classic

Well what to say about this one. Firstly the original album is the best example of an MC's work ever (And I include all Hip Hop). It was produced by a young Gussie Clarke who easily related to Big Youth as was from the same neighbourhood and of comparable age. Both greats of the reggae world this was an early effort and perhaps showcases there talents better than any later release. Big Youth's lyrics roll over cracking backing tracks (remastered by Gussie) of reggae legends such as Horace Andy, Gregory Isaacs and Dennis Brown. This Bonus version includes a lot of the original tracks aswell as Big Youth's versions. I cant recommend this CD enough. Even if you have the original this is a must for the bonus material. Thank You Big Youth, thank you Gussie Clarke thank you Trojan. Wow

This is a great CD. Tracklisting is incorrect. It has 24 tracks.
There is an import copy listed which shows extra tracks !
