Pressing quality is poor but it's cut loud and the defects don't overwhelm the listening pleasure in the case of my pressing. It does concern me that a lot of the copies for sale under this discogs release will be the repress which followed the RSD limited version and don't contain the poster that the RSD version had.

Bad production/packing: Signs of bad handling: streakes, fingertips. Audio with some light crackles.

A+ album and a (5 star) roots classic. Front cover is awesome and different from other releases - this is the original JA version. It's very rare to find both sleeve and vinyl in EX condition. Big tunes include: Runaway Girl, Chalice In The Palace, Dreadlocks Dread, The Great Psalms, and African Message. Altogether, a very enjoyable album.

The very Lp that got me convinced that all Reggae did NOT sound the same! 'Nuff said!

Classic album, but with U-Roy, I like the tunes better if listened to in isolation.
