For high-powered reggae enjoyment, it's hard to beat this collection. Featuring 25 wigged out early reggae stompers inspired by spaghetti westerns, The Big Gun Down is a riot. Besides all of the sizzling Upsetters tunes, you get dynamite songs by The Crystallites, rare shots from the likes of Johnny Lover and Andy Capp, and the whole collection is worth it for the Hippy Boys' monster "Death Rides A Horse". Also listen for a hilarious jab at Lee Perry in Lloyd Charmers' "Vengeance".
