The label has sweetened the package by adding five bonus tracks, one of them a fine DJ version of Osbourne's "Turn Me On" — on it, producer Thompson comes to the mic to show off his toasting skills and turns the track into an herb anthem titled "Marijuana Tree." This is a fine and well-packaged document of early dancehall reggae.
