Studio One Singles

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Lymangrover
Considering that HeartBeat previously released a similar-minded best of the Gladiators at Studio One that contains many of the same hits, it may be a toss-up between the better choice.

If you would rather have all of the singles intertwined with accompanying B-side dub versions, then Studio One Singles may be up your alley.

Aside from this slight deterrent, the hits included here are some of the most harmonious to come out of this wonderfully raw era of roots music.
