The continuation of 'Pirates Choice’ from Studio One, the top compilation album of 70’s roots rock and soul reggae in 1981.
This set includes rare tunes that mark high prices in European collector market mainly, but at the same time, are designed so that beginners can enjoy entire album.

'Born A Freeman / Al Campbell & Freddie McGregor’ is one of the most sought-after tunes in the Studio One catalogue, currently valued at more than £2000 on the collector site ‘Discogs’. Luckily, it’s a great record.

'Homeward Bound / Freddie McGregor’, 'Jah Light / Cedric Brooks’ are exclusive dub plate mixes and 'Instrumental / Brentford Rocker’ is a famous dub killer dub plate in UK scene. Of course, they are previously unreleased.

'Chinese Beauty / Lennie Hibbert’ has a suitably oriental-sounding melody, with the former bandleader at Alpha School on vibes, ably assisted by organist Jackie Mittoo.
Rarities but goodies of 70’s top tunes that the seasoned collector reach after struggles.

This is new compilation from Rocka Shacka with brilliant liner notes.
