The package includes sleeve notes by Reggae expert Steve Barrow, author of The Rough Guide To Reggae.Originally released in June 1996 on the short-lived Island Jamaica Jazz imprint, ‘Below The Bassline' was the Jamaican guitarist's nineteenth solo album - his first 'Wranglin'' was released by Chris Blackwell's Island Records in 1964. It was recorded in New York with a stellar cast of guest musicians, including Ernest's Skatalites bandmate saxophonist Roland Alphonso, bass player Ira Coleman (Herbie Hancock, Bradford Marsalis, Pharoah Sanders), drummer Idris Muhammad (George Benson, Lou Donaldson, Grant Green) and pianist Monty Alexander (Tony Bennett, Quincy Jones, Dizzy Gillespie).
