Recensione album

Although the earliest recordings compiled here are rather fuzzy, and even the later recordings don't have terrific sound quality, the relaxed, rock steady warmth of the Heptones overcomes any thoughts of low fidelity. Starting with their earlier recordings in 1966, through some of their last sides of 1976 (right before lead singer Leroy Sibbles left the group), this collection presents an interesting mix of material that ranges from lovelorn cries ("I Am Lonely," "I'm Crying") to matter-of-fact warnings ("Hypocrite," "Babylon Falling")).
