    This king size dub album is a lion of a record roaring with dub plates, rarities and obscure gems. Dominated by the drums of Sly Dunbar it represents a golden period when Channel One held the key to much of what was to follow in reggae music. The sound of Channel One, which achieved worldwide prominence in the mid-seventies reggae boom, wielded an unparalleled influence throughout the world. Its origins were based on Ernest and Jo Jo Hookim's lifelong love of music and their fascination with the way it was made. They were true visionaries and it is impossible to overstate the influence that the brothers' custom built studio wielded on the development of Jamaican music.
