"Kiddus I is the mysterious figure singing at the start of the film Rockers. A graduate of Ras Michael’s Sons Of Negus, a key member of The Wailers milieu, and a Black Art artist, his recordings - centered on the Roots Reggae period - are marked by the openness of their musical horizons, and a striking originality and integrity. Yet Kiddus I’s disdain for careerism has held him back from the spotlight - as so many people in Jamaican music will tell you. Now, this revelatory, comprehensive retrospective will surely confirm his place amongst the all-time greats of reggae music." (from the booklet)
