This deluxe 2CD represents the album alongside an incredible 43 bonus tracks that include the original vocal versions of recordings on the LP plus the best of Pottinger’s output from the 12 months preceding its release.
This immensely popular album makes its CD debut on disc 1 of this set, with the LP’s original track-listing bolstered by the remainder of the singer’s UK- produced output for Pama from 1969 to 1970. The second disc on this 2CD collection comprises Morgan’s other Pama long-player from the period, “In London”, the contents of which are supplemented by the remainder of his Jamaican-produced recordings from the late Sixties.
This seminal 1967 set provides the focus of the first disc on this 2CD release, with its dozen tracks supplemented by an array of rock steady gems from Reid’s archives, many of which have remained unavailable for years. Disc 2, meanwhile, showcases the previously unreleased LP, “Soul Rock-Steady”, featuring Treasure Isle’s in- house band, the Supersonics.
Now, at long last, all four of these historically important albums have been gathered onto this superb two-disc set, with all but “Blow Your Horn” making their CD debut. The result is a timely celebration of the original boss reggae style championed by first generation skinheads half a century ago!
Both of these hugely important collections feature on this essential 2CD set, the contents of which is further bolstered by the remainder of Brown’s work with Niney from the Seventies and DJ cuts of some of his biggest hits performed by a number of Jamaica’s most influential toasters, notably Big Youth, Dillinger and I Roy.
