I haven't really seen any other compilation out there like this one. You've got your great classic rock tracks (with the exception of relative new comer, Green Day) by Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Steve Miller Band, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan as covered by their great reggae counterparts, Toots and the Maytals, Big Mountain, Steel Pulse and others. It's a lot of fun to listen to, and the reggae bands do it with much respect to the original artists. The covers are reminiscent of the originals, but still different enough. I have lots of favorites on here, especially the Toots' cover of Start Me Up. Perfect for both rock and reggae lovers.
