This is the third CD in the series Merritone Records from Dub Store Records in Japan. All tracks produced by Ken Khori at the Federal Recording Studio, Kingston Jamaica, with the house band Lynn Taitt and the Jets backing on most tracks. The cover photo would appear to be Gladstone 'Gladdy' Anderson on piano. I think this track listing is the best in the series so far, with Rock Steady 4,  Untouchable 1968-1969 due out in early 2018. Booklet notes by Noel Hawkes. Issued on Dub Store Records DSR CD 015 Japan
