• Three of the original albums make their CD debut
• One of the most iconic and influential Jamaican artists of all time
• Comprises four of the finest Jamaican DJ LPs of the roots era

By the time Michael Williams aka Prince Far I became established as a recording artist in the mid-Seventies, he was in fact already a veteran of the Jamaican music scene, having begun deejaying early the previous decade.

His deep, slow and deliberate delivery, allied to his consistently hard-hitting commentaries proved popular with reggae fans around the world, most notably in the UK, where his work strongly resonated with the punk generation

In 1979, Far I signed with Trojan Records, cutting a quartet of vocal albums for the company over a four-year period, but in September 1983, soon after the release of his “Musical History” LP, he was senselessly murdered while visiting a friend in Portmore, Jamaica.

This 2CD set brings together the entirety of the influential DJ’s vocal recordings for Trojan, which is today widely regarded to be his finest work.
