Originally released in 1981 on VP Records’ Jah Guidance imprint, this release finds Johnny Osbourne in peak form, working with producer Linval Thompson (Freddie McGregor’s Big Ship, Viceroys, et al) and with backing from the Roots Radics Band at Channel One. The original mix is by Hopeton “Scientist” Brown. Highlights include the extra heavy title track, as well as “Kiss Somebody” and clash-ready “Back Off.”
The exclusive pressing features an extended re-sequence of the original album to include collectable mixes from the Linval Thompson pro-duced session. Limited European press on ‘red splash’ colored vinyl.

    Picked up this lovingly produced reissue, and am, overall, quite pleased. Glad to have extended mixes on 5 of the 9 tracks (although at least one has a short pause between vocal and dub). If you've been collecting reggae for years, like I have, you may find you have some of these tracks elsewhere, but you'll be glad to have them all in one place on this beautiful reissue.
