TJR says

Island's much-loved compilation has been reissued many times over the years and has a very direct appeal from the no-nonsense cover to the great selections. As the cheesy liner notes from Guy Stevens tell it:

Here is a great collection of the swingiest, groovisest sounds from Jamaica that we have ever had the pleasure of compiling. Here, on one LP, are some of the best-known, best-loved Jamaican ska favourites. Every track has been a big winner for the artistes who made them famous, all have been on the best-seller charts and probably will remain favourites for years to come. We're sure that you will find they are all your personal favourites just as we did. We believe that you will be proud to add this fabulous LP of solid ska hits to your collection.

In putting together this remarkable album, we paid special attention to the records which have been popular favourites in London clubs over the past year or two. Here is the fabulous “Guns Of Navarone”, Roland Alphonso's “Phoenix City” and many more blasting sounds that will keep you moving while you're grooving. So tune in, turn on and happen with us through every one of these thirteen tracks.
