Cover versions have always been an integral part of Jamaican music and an indication of the wide-ranging influences on reggae and the versatility and adaptability of its artists, musicians and producers in their approach to music making. 

This set, compiled by reggae historian Steve Barrow, not only demonstrates the massive influence of American soul and disco releases on Jamaican music but also showcases the wholly original approach of Jamaica's musical maestros. The track listing for 'Doing Our Thing' reads like a roll call of some of the best of Jamaica's greatest ever singers, deejays, musicians and producers. 

The double LP is packaged in a posh gatefold sleeve and includes a tipped-in 20-page insert.
