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.
