One of the best-loved reggae singers of all time. Responsible for many perennial hits that have remained popular with fans since their recording in the late 1960s and early '70s, Slim Smith achieved a lasting influence that trumps the brevity of his vocation and the terribly tragic death that cut everything short. This retrospective includes tracks from Slim Smith & The Uniques period such as 'Let Me Go Girl,' 'My Conversation' or 'Girl Of My Dreams.' These immortal gems and more are collected on the first record of this double-disc set, giving clear indication of the group's tightness and Smith's exceptional ability in the lead. The second disc collects plenty of examples of his solo career, beginning with a tasteful version of 'Keep The Light,' 'Love Power' and 'This Feeling.' The rhythms of many of Slim's best-loved records have been recycled countless times over in subsequent decades, keeping his spirit very much within our contemporary musical landscape.
