The same album with two different titles, both released in plain white sleeves. Whichever version you choose this represents a superb collection of Studio One instrumentals previously issued on hard-to-find 7" singles. The provenance remains somewhat doubtful and sound quality suffers accordingly - the tracks are dubbed from disc rather than the original master tapes.
