Herman Chin Loy has a sound that is as distinctive as any in Reggae, always specializing in the quirky and the offbeat. His Scorpio and Aquarius labels were responsible for some of the most innovative instrumentals in reggae. Based in his Kingston record shop he was perfectly placed to pick up on the 'street' vibes of many of his young hip customers in the early 70s. Herman DJ’d and MC’d at some of Kingston's coolest clubs. He was actually making instrumental records under the name of Augustus Pablo before a skinny young kid called Horace Swaby turned up in his shop holding a melodica!! Herman gifted the name Augustus Pablo on the young Swaby and took him to the studio. The rest is history. What we have here are some of the liveliest funky reggae music that was ever made. There are a handful of vocal tracks but all are killas. Two different cuts of Alton's Official Daughter, Dennis Brown and the little known but very talented Archie Mckay. DJ Dennis Alcapone and super scat intros from Herman himself.

This album is a delight from start to finish.
