The final release in Trojan's Words series is a solid collection of early roots tunes, featuring some obscure songs from the great Junior Byles as well as unknown artists such as Paul Freeman and Joy White. The inclusion of the Upsetters versions on most of the tracks is a nice touch as well. While certainly not as crucial as Words Of My Mouth or Chapter 2 Of Words, serious fans might want to seek this out for some rare tracks not available elsewhere. One final note: the very rare "Babylon A Fall" and "Cripple Skank" were mastered from a really terrible 7", so be prepared for the sound of bacon frying on the final two songs!
