Roots With Quality, a 2009 installment in VP's critically acclaimed Reggae Anthology series looks back at the career of the highly influential George Boswell aka Winston 'Niney' Holeness aka Niney The Observer. Niney was one of the central figures in the formation of the reggae music style, from its late 60's roots through the 70's heyday.

Niney was integral to the scene's development, initially cutting his teeth under the tutelage of Clement Coxsone Dodd, before moving to work for Bunny Lee, Joe Gibbs and Lee Scratch Perry, creating hits for everyone from Dennis Brown to Peter Tosh.

Niney's roll call is too long to fit everyone in but there's enough goodness from Big Youth, Dennis Brown, Max Romeo, Gregory Isaacs, Horace Andy, Sugar Minott, The Ethiopians and loads more to give you a very good idea of the man's legacy. From sweetly conscious reggae to echo chamber dubs, Niney's truly done it all.
