From back cover: "For this re-issue we have expanded the 'Original Rockers' album with a second disc of further cuts of its classic rhythms. The original 1979 Greensleeves compilation was instrumental in bringing the music of Augustus Pablo to an international audience and with this official deluxe edition, made with full approval of the original compilers, we pay tribute to that landmark release and ensure the music and memory of Augustus Pablo continue to live on."
