Reseña de álbum

Yabby You's extended absence from the reggae scene was broken with this fine comeback album, which finds him reunited with the Prophets (harmony singers Alrick Forbes and Da Da Smith) as well as some of the heaviest session players of reggae's golden era, including bassist Lloyd Parks, drummer Sly Dunbar and horn players Tommy McCook and Bobby Ellis.

This album stands solidly with the best of Yabby You's classic 1970s work, and that's high praise.
