Boomkat Product Review:
**Ace compilation with some killah early and classic Niney vocals** "‘Blood and Fire’was originally a 200 copy release on his Destroyer label, but switched to his Observer label, where it would go on to sell over 30,000 copies in Jamaica and be named song of the year in 1971. Alongside this classic and our opening track on this compilation, are other killer cuts by the Observer. ‘Message To The Ungodly’cut at Randy’s Studio 17 in 1972 featured not only Lloyd Charmers and Dobby Dobson on harmonies but the great Ken Boothe. ‘Bring The Couchie Come’ had Mr Dennis Brown on backing vocals. The classic ‘Keep On Pushing’ features the Heptones on harmonies and ‘Mix Up’the Morwells and the great Bingy Bunny on guitar.’ Jah Fire’ although having the rhythm cut as Randy’s Studio 17, the harmony parts by the Heptones were to be put down at Dynamic Studios, ‘Ital Correction’ had Mr ET Thompson working the feedback and the next two cuts ‘Rasta No Pick Pocket’and‘Aily And Ailaloo’ were cut at Dynamic and Aily features Lloyd Chambers and Max Romeo on backing vocals. ‘Hail I’, ‘Everybody Say I’m A Rasta’ and ‘Beg In The Gutter’ all carry trademark timeless rhythms and ‘Observing The Avenue’ reworks a similar theme to Sly Stone’s ‘Everyday People’with the added Niney magic. ‘Hiding By The Riverside’ takes a gospel/biblical route to convey its message. If Niney The Observers work as a singer was ever in doubt or overshadowed by his many other talents,then we hope that this album will put that to rest. Niney behind the microphone as compared to a mixing desk is a great, great, thing…"
