The guy should be revered. This two CD set from Trojan (am I on their payroll? – no) is a wealth of great reggae soul moments (Better Must Come, Cool Operator, Living In The Footsteps, the devastating This Life Makes Me Wonder) with 50 tracks (value!) and even still is not definitive (not a single version of Conquer Me, one of the greatest defiant Jamaican self-promoting songs ever). He’s gone now but people will be happily discovering his music for a long, long time.
