In the 50 odd years of the musical history of Jamaica's popular music and the development of its styles through ska, rocksteady, reggae and onwards, time has now allowed some perspective so that the major players who created and changed styles and formed the music's sonic backbone can be identified and recognized for their achievements. The names that come easily to mind, as far as the players of instruments are concerned, are people like Ernie Ranglin, Lynn Taitt, Bobby Aitken, Jackie Mittoo, Tommy McCook and so on, there is a whole premier league of major movers that have become familiar over time.

However, hidden to those with only a casual interest is a deeper layer of musicians and arrangers who were equally key in the development of the music, such a player is keyboardist Bobby Kalphat, best known for his work with producer Phil Pratt but who worked with a series of some of the top artists of Jamaica from the late-60s through to the present day.

This release features the legendary album Zion Hill Dub, originally out on pre-release only on Pratt's Terminal imprint in 1977 and never re-issued until now; the set is a collection of a few 45s bearing Kalphat's name as an artist plus a number of other sides where he featured as the main player, either on keys or melodica. In addition to the original ten tracks from the album a further seven contemporary cuts are added as a bonus.
