48-tracks from the Joe Gibbs’ stable of the 1970s, featuring a diversity of performer and musical styles. A 2CD set that includes significant Jamaican hits alongside almost forgotten rarities, with all but 15 recordings making their CD debut, many tracks unavailable on any format since the early ‘70s with 33 tracks new to CD. Including many of the biggest Jamaican hits of the early 1970s.

As the ‘70s unfolded, producer Joe Gibbs continued his inexorable rise to the top of the island’s musical tree. His willingness to try new talent and styles gave him an edge over many of his contemporaries, as reflected in the willingness of major artists to join his roster of acts.

Among their number were such established stars and Dennis Brown, The Heptones, The Ethiopians, Delroy Wilson, Alton Ellis and Derrick Morgan, and newcomers who were just beginning to make their mark on the local recording scene.
