I'm not a huge Reggae fan, but I have always loved this album. Picked it up on vinyl when it came out almost 35 years ago and I still have my copy. I picked up the original CD release in the '90s which sounded muddy to me. Then I picked up the remastered version on which they seemed to have boosted the high hat to stratospheric i.e. painful levels. Played this yesterday and once again, the vinyl sounds killer. Huge soundstage and D E E P bass. I am running a Rega 2 through a Marantz 2245 and Klipsch KG4s + ADS 520s and the place was rocking . . . or should I say swaying. Anyway, it sounded great.
There are so many great tracks and grooves on this album, my favorites being Exodus, Concrete Jungle and War/No More Trouble.
