You should be ashamed to talk about Dodd here, he has no creativity, many other people leads thier own recording studio but who has real power to create music ????
Lee Perry was a reggae & dub creator, Dodd was no-one in this music mood, only a money maker. See full review

Yep! as you say "it sounds from a bucket" but something's more strange is "Shine Eye Gal" has been released on Black Uhuru - Liberation: The Island Anthology with a perfect sound (taken from the same performance) it means that nice sounding version probably exists !

Compressed sound as many B&F releases so it doesn't worth the 200 bucks asked by some sellers.
Whatever, it's a nice compilation with "mr know it all ". It was sold new for 22€ to 30€ in 2001 when record shops was the only way to get it.

Mighty reggae singer, tracks like "the long way" may transport you even if you don't smoke ... lot of tunes with many good producers as Lee Perry, Niney, "Ja-Man" Dudley Swaby ... If you're new to roots reggae then you must listen to him !

To contrast with Eyeandeye comment on "Rasta Pon Top" album, in my opinion this second opus from Twinkle Brothers is better musically with McCook,Ellis and Gordon on horn section.
Strong roots music, even if Rasta Pon Top is a great lp too.
Cheers !

Sounds way much better than the CD reissued by M10 in early 2000's, dynamics instead of heavy compressed sound on CD version.

Definitive version (to me) is the 1976 press. I have had both of them and even if the 99 press is good, the 76' beats it (bass is a little louder for example, trebles are not so present, "dirty" sound from the black ark yunno) even the CD version of... See full review

Avoid this bad label if you're looking for nice represses, they're ripping old vinyls to press some new ones with hiss and clicks, they should be ashamed to use the word "roots" in their name.

Minor press issues , heavy bass, treble are a bit muffled, more or less clicks on side's end, a great copy to play.

Keith Hudson was an avant-garde artist and producer in reggae music, he was evolving against the productions of this crucial "roots" period.
To me he was a musical genius.
This re-press is very good, hard to find for less than 35€ sadly.
