Great compilation of rare and unreleased mid to late seventies Striker Lee material containing some tuff dub mixes of otherwise familiar material.  Highlights include Barrington Spence's Blood Of Babylon, previously only issued as a track featuring I Roy on his 1975 Virgin release Crisis Time, a different take of Wayne Jarrett's ultra heavy Satta Dread and Linval Thompson's Big Big Girl / Ethiopian Girl featuring studio chat and false starts, it's monumental rhythm also used for Tommy McCook's Death Trap which appears here with the "steppers" drum overdub, originally issued as a track on one of McCook's mid-seventies instrumental LP's.  Lee's productions are indeed ubiquitous yet thi album does indeed offer something fresh to even the most jaded of listeners.
