"This video is one of the better made and edited reggae video I have seen. It features some of the top singers and DJs like Wayne Wonder, Beres Hammond, Dennis Brown, Freddie McGregor, Buju, Bearning Spear, Maxie Priest, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Garnett Silk. The performances are taken from several concerts held in Jamaica and and overseas. A majority of the video was shot at Sting "94 and JapanSplash 1994. DVD sound quality certainly adds a new dimension to this video. It would be nice to have a similar video made that highlights more of the individual performances of each singer and/or DJ (Dennis Brown, Garnett Silk, Luciano, Buju etc.)"

"I've been to Jamaica twice and I love the country and its culture. If you are a "serious" (pronounced "seros" in Jamaican Patois), this is a must have Item on your collection. There is nothing more than seeing your faveorite Reggae and Dancehall artists perform live in your own living room!"
Must Have for Reggae Collectors

"This video may be a little boring by today's standards (it's about 10 + yrs old), but the coverage of DENNIS BROWN, LUCIANO, SHAGGY, MAXI PRIEST, YAMI BOLO, AND GARNETT SILK are crucial 'must have' items for any true reggae music collector!The production & editing are excellent (especially by REGGAE standards....as many reggae videos are poorly produced)"
Don't waste your money on this one

"This would have to be the worst collection of flat sounding reggae clips i have ever seen. The audio is so flat and compressed that even if there was something interesting on it, it would not be enjoyable. Complete waste of money."
Reggae = yes, Movie = no

"I enjoyed this film more in the theatre (better sound). As I viewed it again, it's pretty boring. There's no dialog. It's not even a movie really. It's just concert footage. The Mystic Revealers are especially boring. I wish it featured more Luciano, and Garnett Silk..."
