Not the complete recordings of Junior Byles by a long shot, but the best collection of his solo material currently on the market. All of the solo hits are here as well as a good amount of previously unreleased material and outtakes. The revelatory tracks include "A Place Called Africa" and "Informer Man" both of which show off the richness of Byles' voice and the astute and sympathetic production offered by Lee "Scratch" Perry. Roots/riddim singing in a fine style, this is where to go to get your first sampling of this vastly underrated reggae singer.
