Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven McDonald
A remarkable debut from a band whose desire was to infuse reggae with other influences, continuing a direction in Jamaican music that was perhaps best expressed by artists along the lines of Count Ossie and Ras Michael and the Sons of Negus. Standout moments include "Sette Messgana," "Sun Won't Shine" and their loping cover of Burning Spear's "Slavery Days." A real rarity in Jamaican music of the period was a serious lead guitarist, which made "Cat" Coore's lead guitar breaks all the more startling in context. A brilliant debut.
