From the legends like Bob Marley, Gregory Isaacs, Jimmy Cliff, Dennis Brown and Third World to the chart crossovers from Shaggy, UB40, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Musical Youth and Ini Kamoze to the roots of ska with Desmond Dekker, The Pioneers, Toots & The Maytals, Max Romeo and John Holt.

There are also great one offs from Janet Kay ("Silly Games"), Johnny Nash ("I Can See Clearly") and Dave & Ansil Collins ("Double Barrell") to satisfy every reggae fan's need! This is an obvious summer crossover album for beach and BBQ alike.
