It's hard to imagine now what kind of an impact these guys had on the music scene in the UK for anyone not familiar with these classic tunes... The mixing of reggae and breaks, and ragga and rave certainly caught my attention back in the day, and i don't think i'm alone in that.

This is a pretty comprehensive collection of their output from the excellent Soul Jazz label and really worth your hard earned cash in my opinion. It's not fully comprehensive though, and is missing some quality tunes. However, there is plenty to be going along with here, with such absolutely stonking tracks as Shine Eye (sampling Black Uhuru's Shine Eye Girl), 18" Speaker and Spliffhead (both versions). If you've got the vinyl, buy it anyway for it's crisp sound - if you haven't got the vinyl, lucky you, you don't need it now!
