"Silver Bullets" is alleged to have been recorded in one day, but provides its own map of reggae's musical evolution at the time--from the early reggae stylings of "He'll Break Your Heart" to the smoky, soul-flavored roots of "Rejoice Jah Jah Children." As such the album reflected Lee Perry's considerable evolution as a producer, and features some of the earliest recordings from Perry's Black Ark Studio.

This long overdue reissue takes that variety a step further, compiling all of The Silvertones' known sides produced by Lee Perry. It's a treat for collectors and fans, but the trio's energy, skill, and adventurous spirit, along with the haunting baritone of lead singer Delroy Denton, make this recommended for all listeners.
