Aided by singer/producer Larry Marshall and singer Rupert Willington, the resulting music was some of the most innovative of the style eventually categorized as roots reggae

All songs written by Winston Rodney/Burning Spear Publishing, except "Queen of the Mountain," written by Winston Rodney and Noel Hamil/Burning Spear Publishing.
