| A beautiful spectrum of reggae performances
This film is a "must" for any reggae fan. It contains performances by the late Garnett Silk, Yami Bolo (rarely seen on film), Maxi Priest, Burning Spear, and a touching set by Apache Indian featuring his young son. It encompasses dance hall, roots, and "lovers rock" styles.
