A more or less straight CD reisssue of vibraphone player Lennie Hibbert's first album for Studio One, but with two bonus tracks. It features cool instrumental workouts over mostly original rhythms - stand out tracks include a collaboration with Count Ossie on Nat King Cole's Nature Boy, and Real Hot, the first Studio One cut on the Tonight rhythm.

Minimal packaging, no sleeve notes, and the track listing is wrong - well, this is Studio One, after all. The two extra tracks reprise Twilight Zone and Village Soul with some rather tasteful sax overdubs (for a change). If you like Jackie Mittoo's Studio One albums, then you'll like this one, too. I like it.
