Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
An odd archival release geared toward the dancehall historian, Let's Go Back...Way Back, Vol. 1: Dancehall Originators kicks off Ziggy Marley and the Tuff Gong label's salute to the originators of modern dancehall. Ziggy makes good use of his family's Tuff Gong imprint with the set, bringing a set of forgotten tracks back into print and packaging them with informative liner notes plus a worthwhile essay.
