OK this is definitely the best reggae compilation album. As far as I am concerned Jimmy Cliff is better than Bob Marley.
And this CD contains Jimmy Cliff's very best work.
When I was twelve years old, in 1984, I got hold of this exquisite Jimmy Cliff album called House of Exile (1974) , and since then the tape has been worn. I have since then, been unable to get another copy of House of Exile, but now I have found this fantastic album which has 5 incredible from House of Exile, as well as many other fantastic Jimmy Cliff hits.
The lively upbeat `Solid As a Rock', `Music Maker', the contemplative `House of Exile', the exquisite gospel piece, `I Want To Know' as well as songs from the late 60's like `Wonderful World, Beautiful People', `Suffering in the Land' and `Many Rivers to Cross'.
This is indeed a masterpiece. Let it be your first Cliff album, indeed your first reggae album.

This cd, while not earthshattering, is a good collection of the more essential Cliff recordings. It represents Cliff's most productive early-mid 70's period nicely, and certainly shows why Cliff is the reggae master for the ages. A tad overpriced, and I personally feel you can get much better, but still a nice collection all in all.

This is the ultimate Jimmy Cliff CD. His more recent material from the '80s like Cliff Hanger and Hangin' Fire are great pop albums, but there is no better classic reggae than the songs on this CD. I will even argue that this album it is better than any offerings from his overproduced contemporary, Bob Marley.

It comes from the early days of reggae when it was first breaking, very pure and not overproduced but most of the best tracks are on the soundtrack of The Harder It Comes movie. Early reggae is more about social injustice and inequality and rebellion and revolution wrather than just peace love and staying stoned.

I love this CD for Many Rivers To Cross alone. Yet I discovered so many other beautiful and moving songs that I love as well. You won't regret getting this and will listen to it often. It is moving, literally, and I dare you not to sway to the music as you listen. I always do and not all music inspires that kind of visceral response.
