The album features ska, rocksteady, djs, roots and dub. The album features classic tracks from Jamaica’s finest singers and groups such as the Wailers, John Holt, the Wailing Souls, Dennis Brown alongside super-rare tracks from artists such as Mr Foundation, Dudley Sibbley and the Soul Brothers, all recorded under Clement ‘sir Coxsone’ Dodd’s supervision at the legendary recording studio and record label.
