This is a retrospective of the Abyssinians` career from 1969 to about 1982. Any fan will know that the Abyssinians re-recorded many of their classic songs. This is common in Reggae and is not necessarily a bad thing. Each version often brings out a fresh rhythmic style and different musicians. But it`s good to know what you`re getting, so here goes.
