1973-1976 was a period in reggaes’ history when the music coming from Kingston,
Jamaica, was at it’s peak.So many talented singers who sang soulful / righteous
songs found their way onto tape. Maybe it was the competition between studios like
Randys ,Channel 1 and Harry J’s, and the quality of the singers available to sing
these tunes. But whatever caused this explosion, the mighty voices of Horace Andy,
Cornell Campbell, Johnny Clarke and Ronnie Davis never sounded better.

Another factor you can see from the individual track notes, that we unearthed
researching these tunes is The cream of Kingstons’ musicians were also used
to make these tracks. The Barrett Brothers, Carlton and Aston show they cut
their musical teeth on many tunes, While also honing their drum and bass sound,
that was to be their musical legacy while Working as part of Bob Marleys', The Wailers.

The great Santa Davis played drums alongside Robbie Shakespeare on many of
these cuts, he came in the period just prior to Sly and Robbies’ partnership, from
then on their work always seemed intertwined. Other unsung heroes from Jamaicas’
musical heritage are also found on these recordings. Guitar greats like Tony Chin
and Chinna Smith worked alongside keyboard wizard Winston Wright. Also a young
man named Augustus Pablo. The mystical melodica player that unbeknown to many,
played keyboards and organ on many recording sessions around this time.

The tracks as you can see were culled together from sessions recorded at the fore
mentioned legendary studios. Then taken to King Tubbys' home studio at 18
Drummlie Avenue in the Waterhouse district of Kingston. This is where the great
Dubmeister himself would record the vocal tracks. A method in which he preferred
to work and then mix the tracks Tubby Style.... We have travelled to Jamaica and
listened to hours of master tapes to bring this set to you. So please sit back and
enjoy what we believe to be a wicked set by Kingstons finest. ALLSTARS one and
all...One more time Mr Tubby if you please, roll the tape........
