Remastered and expanded edition of this hyper-rare early '70s release from the 'Godfather Of Ska'. By 1970, Laurel Aitken was well and truly established as the Father of British Reggae, having dominated the country's Jamaican music scene since his arrival at the start of the '60s. But having enjoyed success with every UK-based West Indian record company of note over the previous eleven years, he was no longer content with simply domestic triumphs and set his sights on conquering foreign territories. So it was he took the unusual step of licensing his next album to companies in Europe and North America, while leaving his legions of British fans scrambling for the few copies available on import. Originally out on the Belgian label Hebra 42 years ago and never reissued ever since, this is one of the unmissable '70s ska classics finally back on vinyl, with the addition of 4 bonus tracks.
