Almost alone amongst contemporary Jamaican producers Lloyd James, professionally known as King Jammy, is a link between the golden age of reggae from the mid-seventies to the current Jamaican reggae scene and Jammy's records are as much in demand today as they have ever been in the past. Always synonymous with the Waterhouse district of Kingston, and having learnt his trade as an apprentice with King Tubby, Jammy continued to work in an area that has probably had more input into the development of reggae than anywhere else in Jamaica. Waterhouse is soaked in both musical tradition and startling innovation.

Gathered together on this compilation we have sixteen tracks spread over a double vinyl release with rare photographs and a twelve page CD booklet containing sleevenotes and photographs from Dave Hendley whose own musical experience was entwined with Jammy from the late seventies to the early eighties. Artists such as Black Uhuru, Johnny Osbourne, Hugh Mundell and Augustus Pablo are all featured on this selection while other not so well known artists such as Wayne Smith and the Mighty Rudo also contribute standout tracks.
