Notes

Max Romeo is a man with a changed style.
No more songs like "Wet Dreams" - his new consciousness spreads the message of the people with Street Music cries for freedom and independence. That freedom can be won only by struggle and perseverance is the coda of 'Revelation Time".
In the album, "Warning! Warning!", Max comments on the police victimization in "Three Blind Mice" and cries out for brotherhood and justice in "No Peace". Its chugging roots' rhythms are the sound of Jamaica today.
