"From 1971, this Studio One release introduced the rest of the world to Alcapone's part singing, part chanting, part rapping toasting style that made him so loved in Jamaica.The tracks are top rate, showcasing Alcapone's emerging style. There certainly are moments in his delivery where he blatently copies U-Roy's famous little screams and hiccups, but he can't be blamed for that- many of the toasters today also copy U-Roy, so why shouldn't Alcapone?Of interest to collectors will be the "Dancing Version," (Written by Bunny Wailer) featuring the Wailers, who do a nice job backing up Alcapone on this track- one which Wailer revisits as "Dancing Dub" on his great "Dubd'sco" lp in 1978.Overall, this lp rules the toasting roost, and is a super introduction to both Alcapone, but to the toasting style, as well. A must have."
