Featuring excellent sleevenotes that drew on Alan Robertson's authoritative biography of Harriott, the set also included the already extant Swings High (1967). Though this was issued with permission from Cadillac Records, how necessary this was in the circumstances is open to discussion. Its inclusion did, however, allow younger fans to hear how the guy sounded on a later blowing session.

Joseph Arthurlin Harriott (15 July 1928 – 2 January 1973) was a Jamaican jazz musician and composer, whose principal instrument was the alto saxophone. Initially a bebopper, he became a pioneer of free-form jazz. Born in Kingston, Harriot moved to the United Kingdom as a working musician in 1951 and lived in the country for the rest of his life

Abstract, Red. "Please retry". This album features three West Indian immigrants: Joe himself, Skake(speare) Keane, Coleridge Goode plus British pianist Pat Smythe and either drummer Phil Seamen or Bobby Orr. The music is unique in character and sound. It is a milestone in British jazz.
