Winston Holness aka Niney The Observer began producing with Joe Gibbs and supervising sessions for both Lee Perry and Bunny Lee during the late 60’s. The 1970 hit track “Blood And Fire” which kicks off this album got his own Observer label off the ground in a major way, and over the past three decades he has produced high quality records featuring an amazing array of reggae’s biggest superstars.

This retrospective features a who’s who of roots reggae legends, including Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Freddie McGregor, Michael Rose, Junior Byles, Delroy Wilson, Sugar Minott, Leroy Smart and many, many others who were inspires to cut some of their best music for The Observer. Deejay versions and amazing King Tubby’s mixes are also here in a package that features the full story of one of the most inventive producers in Jamaican music history. 40 tracks and two CDs for the price of one, comprehensive linernotes and photos included makes this a must for any Roots Reggae fan.
