Wizdom is an excellent collection of rare 7" singles and their B-sides, featuring songs and artists that you can't find anywhere else. For serious Scratch fans, this will fill many gaps in your collection, as it contains obscure versions of better known rhythms. Highlights include The Hurricanes' menacing "You Can Run", the amazing "Cane River Rock", and I Roy's crazy cool "Doctor Who", delivered over The Upsetters' magic "Medical Operation". Ascension has also released a "sequel" album called Truth And Wizdom with more of the same. Both are highly recommended.
