(5 out of 5 stars)

"I will save you valuable time by just saying you should buy this album.For those of you who prefer longer reviews :Wonderful music; excellent emotion; brilliant lyrics."
Roots rock at its best
Laurence Upton | 06/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Traditional roots at its best. Albert Griffiths voice shines brighter than the morning sun, with songs like "Looks Is Decieving" and "Bellyfull", this album remains at the top of my list and is a must have for any reggae fan. Surely the Gladiators have made Jah Proud."
Front Line period
Laurence Upton | Wilts, UK | 08/23/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This 19-tracker is compiled from the period 1976-1979 when the Gladiators were recording at Joe Gibbs, Harry J and Channel One in Jamaica for the UK label Front Line, and includes singles such as Chatty Chatty Mouth, Dreadlocks The Time Is Now, Pocket Money and Stick A Bush. All the tracks were produced by Prince Tony Robinson or the Gladiators themselves using the best session musicians (Sly Dunbar, Ansell Collins, Earl "Wire" Lindo, Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace etc. etc.) of the day.

All of their classic Front Line album debut Trench Town Mix Up, apart from the tracks Know Yourself Mankind and Thief In The Night, is included, along with key tracks from Proverbial Reggae, Naturality and Sweet So Till.

The only disappointment is the single Pocket Money, as it is not the lengthy 12" mix featuring U-Roy but a short single edit that was on the UK B-side of Dreadlocks The Time Is Now, and also is the only mono mix on the album."
