The tracks on CD are labeled wrong. I'm not sure about the vinyl. "How Deep Is Your Love" and "Irie Irie" are both instrumental/dub versions-not the vocal versions. Regardless, this is a very good collection of Lee Perry Material and a great starting point for a curious newbie to Scratch's material. Mastercuts consistently put out quality compilations worthy of their titles, and can usually be purchased sight-unheard. Given there's so much material to pull from, this collection has a nice range of several early reggae styles. The heavy dub tracks like "Dreadlock" and "Jah" and "Cool Rockers" are a wonderful thing and the early vocal tunes are essential historic recordings.
