With classics like Desmond Dekker's "007 Shanty Town," Lee "Scratch" Perry's "Return of Django," Bob Marley & the Wailers' "Small Axe" and "Trench Town Rock," Chaka Demus & Pliers' "Twist and Shout," and Beenie Man's "Dancehall Queen," among others, this funky little collection makes for a quick dive through the history of Jamaican pop music.
