Though not comprehensive (Since it\'s limited to Trojan\'s archives, artists are repeated.), this is about as good an embodiment of roots reggae as there is available. Included are well-known standards -- like Prince Far I\'s "Under Heavy Manners," The Silvertones\' "Rejoice Jah Jah Children" (along with a clearer dub version, "African Dub"), Johnny Clarke\'s rocking "None Shall Escape the Judgement," Dennis Brown\'s classic "Africa," and Lee "Scratch" Perry\'s "Words" (AKA "Words of My Mouth") -- but it is the more obscure tunes that truly make this set memorable (I only wish that Trojan would\'ve put some more effort into their liner notes so we could find out more about them.). Where else can you find gems from unfamiliar acts like The Jay Boys, The Shadows, Truth Fact & Correct, The Sons of Selassie, Lizzard, and The Velvet Shadows? Even though you probably don\'t know them, believe me, their anonymity doesn\'t take away from the quality of their work. Although most of this music harks from the \'70s, they ring like new in the ears of those many listeners who haven\'t previously had the privilege of experiencing them. Disc One contains the most sure-shots -- from "Rejoice Jah Jah Children" to Cornell Campbell\'s "Jah Jah Me No Born Yah" to Johnny Osbourne\'s "Purify Your Heart" to the lesser-known "Burn Babylon" by Sylford Walker and "Brother Noah" by The Shadows, among others. Disc 2 (the weakest of the 3) highlights include "Africa," "Under Heavy Manners," The Abyssinians\' "Yim Mas Gan," and The Ethiopians\' "Hail Brother Rasta Brother Hail." Disc 3 concludes the set on a high note with "Words," The Mighty Diamonds\' "Ghetto Living," Delroy Wilson\'s classic (despite sounding like it was recorded in a well) "Adisabab," along with the more obscure duo of Lizzard and The Velvet Shadows performing "Milk and Honey" and "Babylon a Fall Down," respectively. This is crucial stuff; a must-have for beginners and seasoned roots fans alike.rnrnrnrnTrack ListingrnCD 1:rn1. Cool Rasta -- The Heptonesrn2. I a Man African -- The Sons of Selassiern3.
