Remix in mono with two additional untitled tracks, Right On Rasta and Drunken Sailor Version - making 12 tracks in total (despite what it might say on the sleeve and the labels, which are simply the same as the original issue). Note that Free Man is repeated on Side 1 in place of Father Forgive.

Glory To Sound (Sound Almighty); Give Rasta Glory; Father Forgive (Declaration Of Rights); Walking Through (Knocking At My Door); Free Man (Born A Freeman) // Right Time (Pack Up); Smiley (College Rock); Why Can't I (God I God I Say); Idle Berg (Skylarking); Picture On The Wall

Original Jamaican issue. Most tracks are in a split stereo format, with the saxophone overdubs confined to the right channel. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))
A pre-release pressing was also released on the Winro label in a plain sleeve.

A superb collection of roots instrumentals augmented and enhanced by Cedric 'Im' Brooks soulful sax overdubs, engineered by Sylvan Morris. The sleeve notes say it all: "It is roots music solid, steady with cool tenor styling, nostalgic dance hall echoes of a time past yet full of present day appreciations."

Glory To Sound (Sound Almighty); Give Rasta Glory; Father Forgive (Declaration Of Rights); Walking Through (Knocking At My Door); Free Man (Born A Freeman) // Right Time (Pack Up); Smiley (College Rock); Why Can't I (God I God I Say); Idle Berg (Skylarking); Picture On The Wall

Later (1980s?) repress of the stereo mix. The sleeve illustration is printed over a red background rather than orange. Other pressings can also be found in this sleeve. ((Click sleeve to enlarge.))
