Widely considered to be an all-time favourite amongst roots reggae enthusiasts, it's a mighty brew of skanking rhythms and conscious dread/gunman lyrics. Recorded at Black Ark by The Upsetter (Lee 'Scratch' Perry of course) and King Tubby's between 1973 and 1976 with 'Gimmie Mi Gun' being recorded at Channel One. I think the Tubby's tracks engineered by Philip Smart are probably the standout cuts for me with some grand echo/delay/reverb being applied to the tight rhythms. I'm ashamed to say I'd never actually heard this LP before but this reissue now has a good home.
