Originally released in 1974.

Max Romeo's early work with ‘The Gorgon’ aka Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee began with the controversial late-60s track “Wet Dream,” which had phenomenal success in the U.K. and became a top ten Pop chart hit. “Every Man Ought To Know” is the continuation of the relationship between Romeo and Lee and includes a varied mix of songs, ‘slackness’ from “Pussy Watch Man,” soulful covers, “Sometimes” (originally sung by Gene Thomas) and “Stick By Me” (by Shep & The Limelites – made famous by John Holt) plus early ‘message’ music promoting the teachings of the Rastafarian faith with the title track “Every Man Ought To Know.” Plus there is the eternally catchy and relevant "Rent Crisis", featuring a brief appearance from Romeo's future close collaborator, Lee Perry.
