Under the rocksteady leadership of Albert Griffiths, the Gladiators (formed in 1967) became one of Jamaica's most legendary roots reggae outfits. These Essentials are a connoisseur's selection of tracks from the band's heyday, which hit its zenith in the mid-'70s, when they signed to Virgin and hooked up with producer Prince Tony Robinson for 1976's outstanding [i]Trenchtown Mix Up[/i]: The guitar work on "Looks Is Deceiving" is frankly sublime. Another highlight (of many) is Clinton Fearon's vocal on "Rich Man Poor Man" from 1982's [i]Back to Roots[/i]. All in all, these tracks make up a significant slice of reggae heaven.
