The first overseen over dubbed UK MOR reggae album, each track is a work of art and was well chosen, beautifully arranged and produced, , mixed, mastered and cut for Stereo became a massive massive across the board seller for Trojan saved off receivership and was/is a great easy introduction in to smooth/lighter reggae.

Put John Holt on the UK map as a great vocalist his style so distinct .likened to the Perry Como of the Caribbean The Original and first pressings had the less flattering black and white image on textured card with the 50/50 orange and white labels.

One of those lush and cool albums that every home should have a copy of without question.and tape version in the car

Hard to choose one standout track as all are magical in the own ways, I can only really have a joint two bests/faves
Morning Of My Life and Mr Bojangles, A great way to treasure Mr Holt's contribution to the reggae scene.
