Overview

This three-disc, 48-track reggae roots collection has some great sides, including Peter Tosh's "Equal Rights," Sly Dunbar's spare reading of Bob Marley's "Sun Is Shining," and a pair of beautifully arranged songs from the Mighty Diamonds, "Right Time" and "Africa," but too much here seems rather generic and by the numbers, making this set OK in a pinch but far from essential.
