Originally released 1981 - 1984.

A wicked box set of some of the most forward thinking and experimental reggae of the early 80's. Four studio albums from Adrian Sherwood's On-U Sound label, including the fourth installment of the Singers & Players series, two Creation Rebel albums and a compilation of industrial reggae experiments, Wild Paarty Sounds Vol.1.

Released in 1984, "Leaps & Bounds" by the collective known as Singers & Players features vocal contributions from Prince Far I, Congo Ashanti Roy, Mikey Dread and Bim Sherman, with riddims from Roots Radics.

1981's "Threat To Creation" is a Creation Rebel/New Age Steppers double billing. Probably the most daring dub album to emerge from the UK, this is the nexus where reggae and post punk collide. There's too much cloud and soot for this to be a 100% Jamaican affair, its dark and brooding pulsations mixes Caribbean beats with vibrations from the dark satanic mills.

Coming out of 1982, Creation Rebel's "Lows & Highs" featuring vocals from Crucial Tony and Lizard Logan is the most straight ahead reggae album in the box. One for those less experimentally minded, Style Scott lays down the beats next to Eskimo Fox and Donald Campbell, and Deadly Headley blows away on his horns.
