"The Equators released a great, yet overlooked roots reggae album called HOT in 1981. I've had it on vinyl for years and pull it out now and again to play, always keeping my eye out for a CD reissue. When I saw this CD on Amazon in the Used/New section, I was overjoyed. I ponyed up my $20 and awaited the arrival of the disc. HOWEVER to my dismay, this is not the original recording, it is a remake of the album featuring 3rd wave ska vets (who must have been fans of the album like me) and I believe some of the original members of the Equators recorded in the late 1990s. The reworking of the tunes is simply awful and really disappointing. Perhaps had there been info on this release I could have saved myself from being so let down, just an FYI to fans of the original album."
