Review Text Rocksteady and reggae star John Holt is one of the best vocalists Jamaica has ever produced. Getting his break singing with the Paragons, Holt moved on to solo fame in the early '70s with a string of island and English hits. This West Side roundup features both rocksteady and reggae sides, including a few examples of his work with the Paragons (the title track and "Number One for Me"). Such classics as "Ali Baba" and "A Love I Can Feel" may not be here, but there's still plenty of other gems from Holt's sessions with such famed producers as Bunny Lee, Harry J., Alvin Ranglin, and Clement Dodd. A fine primer for Holt newcomers. ~ Stephen Cook
