"Truly a great festival dedicated to the memory of Bob Marley. This CD includes most of the groups responsible for the resurgence of the "roots reggae" sound that regained popularity in the early 1990's. There is no so called "dance hall" music on this record, thank Jah (dance hall typically incorporates rap, reggae, and techno).The CD includes fantastic tracks by Eek-a-mouse, Steel Pulse, and very soulful efforts from various female vocalists. A special treat is the track "Sugar Pie" performed by a twelve year old Ziggy Marley which is both amuseing and enjoyable.Enjoy this disk when your feeling especially IRIE. Goes well with Ganga."

"I have been transferring all my vinyl to digital and I've noticed a few things about the CD versions of these albums. One, for single Reggae albums, more obscure ones in particular, they will often rearrange song titles and add songs. Two, for double albums they will typically omit tracks, so they can release it on one CD. This album is no exception. Missing tracks on this CD are KKK and Smile Jamaica by Steel Pulse from Side 1.

"For those who love vintage reggae, it just doesn't get much better. This cd also provides some nice Jamaican flavor and shows how recordings of live performances can have so much more soul than studio versions. An outstanding farewell to the master!"
