This is the final two-disc volume in a four-volume set of reggae compilations taken from the vaults of George Phangan influential but frequently overlooked producer who helped to usher in the first Bananarama - I Cant Help It of the dancehall revolution in the late s and early '80s.
Disc one reappropriates the "Sleng Teng" rhythm to interesting effect, removing it from its original Casiotone context and restating it with live instruments; Yellowman and Charlie Chaplin both make good use of the revivified version, while Josey Wales seems to be phoning his performance in.
When the "Stalag 17" rhythm one of the greatest reggae backing tracks ever written appears, however, it seems to fire everyone up, especially Charlie Chaplin -- his "Dance in the Atlantic" is one of this album's highlights.
Elsewhere Josey Wales updates "Throw Me Corn" to very fine effect, Sugar Minott turns in five more typically brilliant performances, and Peter Metro quotes Tina Turner extensively and to no obvious purpose.
