Two CD set. Digitally remastered and expanded edition. Popular 1976 album making it's CD debut. Most tracks new to CD. Includes an array of mid-70s reggae classics. Following his move into music production in late-1968, Alvin 'G. G. ' Ranglin swiftly rose to the higher echelons of the Jamaican music industry and by the mid-70s was firmly established as one of the island's premier music makers. Reflecting his status on the reggae scene, leading London-based operator Trojan Records, secured agreements for his finest works, releasing Ranglin's music on numerous 7" singles and long-playing compilation albums, the last of which was 'Atlantic 1', an LP boasting some of Jamaica's finest vocal and instrumental talent, which the company issued on the it's Horse subsidiary in 1975. Yet despite the album's popularity among reggae die-hards, it has since been largely overlooked and it is not until this long overdue 2CD collection that it is finally made available once more. Further enhancing the collection are an array of bonus tracks, comprising dub cuts of tracks on the album, plus an entire disc showcasing the finest tracks that Ranglin delivered to Trojan prior to the UK company's dramatic demise in 1975 - with most of the recordings making their CD debut with this set.
