What the press say:

Much kudos should go to Mick Hucknall and his compatriots at this Manchester label for keeping the home fires of '70s reggae burning. To introduce bona fide singers like Johnny Clarke and Vivian Jackson and an old-time toaster called Trinity to a new audience is a laudable quest, despite generational differences. Necessary or evil? It might be more advisable to track down the full albums of the featured artists, but then the sampler does do its avowed job - offering a crash course on the label's licensing prowess. Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 27 March 1999
