This is a great selection of poems from the greatest of the dub poets. While all these poems have already appeared in print the original books are difficult to find. If you aren't already a fan, or if you've only heard the records, then this books acts as an excellent introduction to the poems. There is a fine selection of the best poems of LKJ from the seventies, the eighties and the nineties - Dread Beat an Blood, Five Nights of Bleeding, Sonny's Lettah, It dread inna Inglan, Inglan is a Bitch, Mi Revalueshanary Fren, Tings an Times and many more. Of course, as with all such compilations of selected verse, there are some of my favourite poems that are not included.
For those who are unfamiliar with LKJ's work it should be pointed out that he writes in Jamaican patois. If you have difficulty understanding the poems, try reading them aloud or, better yet, search out the recordings of LKJ reciting the poems with reggae backing (something I would recommend even if you can understand the written poems).
Unless you already have all of LKJ's books then I would recommend this book.
