Taxi is Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare's own label and production company, and this 1981 collection is something of a statement of purpose for the pair.

The duo's debut, '60s, '70s & '80s Taxi, appeared back in 1981. Sly-Go-Ville and Kings of Reggae followed swiftly on its heels over the next two years. From there it was into jazz, when the pair collaborated with Monty Alexander for the Monty Meets Sly & Robbie album. The Riddim Twins have also continued to record on a regular basis, both as the crucial bottom end for others' work as well as their own music. Another slew of Sly & Robbie releases followed in the early 2000s, culminating in 2006's Rhythm Doubles, which was nominated for a Best Reggae Album Grammy.
