Retrospective is a collection of many of Bob's best-known works in recordings from the years 1970 - 1975. Nine of the eleven songs included have been UK and/or Jamaican singles. The remaining two tracks - "Patience is the Key" and "Too Proud to Beg" - are previously unreleased gems which had been lost for many years. Retrospective's lengthy list of contributing musicians is a Who's Who of Jamaican music.

CITY LIMITS:
`A consummately excellent presentation of his 70s hits is nothing more than uncrowned reggae king Bob Andy deserves. Retrospective captures the integrity, grace and passion of this "other" Bob's sporadic, classic output: as with Marley's work (these songs) are timely reminders of Jamaica's most durable musical moments.'

REGGAE REPORT:
`This collection deserves utmost respect, now and in the future.'

Q MAGAZINE:
`Bob Andy is one of the most lyrical writers in reggae. This compilation ... is hugely listenable. The voice and the playing are always seductive and melodic.'

ECHOES:
`An album you can turn to again and again; time will not wither its beauty and integrity. Buy this album.'

SMALL AXE:
`A magnificent collection.'

WEST INDIAN NEWS:
`Timeless music - as fine an introduction to the man's artistry as anyone could wish for.'
