Trenchtown Rock makes a convenient and concise double CD collection of The Wailers' earlier work. It gathers together all of the usual suspects from the Lee Perry era as well as many other crucial skanks between 1968 - 1978. Also included are the rare Black Ark recordings of "Keep On Skanking", "Rainbow Country", "Natural Mystic", "I Know A Place" and "Who Colt The Game", which is an added bonus. All in all, a very nice collection.

An important note about the Lee Perry produced Wailers material
