ElectricBananaClub.net Dare I say it? At his best Dennis Bovell is right up there with Jimmy Cliff or Bob Marley. Good, long overdue collection with a lot of variety.

Markus Bader While many artist compilations feature your 2 or 3 favs and let you skip through the rest this one is pure joy and quality all the way through. Though I love the old ones like Row, Row, Row and Guide Us best, this one gets five stars out of five. For all who love Tubby's and Perry of Black Ark times. Highly recommended! CHOOSE IT!!!

"Dennis Bovell is an undisputed master of the dancehall, the studio and the stage. It’s hard to imagine that music created, played or produced by one influential artist can capture and define a whole musical era. This extraordinary collection reveals how that apparently impossible task was completed. Covering almost 40 hard- working years of relentless creativity, this anthology presents a special selection of Bovell’s prolific output. Here, his work ranges across diverse musical forms and styles. A to Z showcases a mighty, outernational talent without either peer or limit."

Paul Gilroy (The Black Atlantic, Darker than Blue)

"A wonderful compilation..the sonic clarity is a trademark of these tunes. Listening through I was so pleased and delighted that track after track jumped out and had a kind of sparkle and clarity to them"

Tom Robinson Presenter and Musician (BBC Radio 6 Music)
