Essential 2010 collection from the woman who introduced the world to Ska. It has been over 45 years since Jamaica's own Queen of Blue Beat, Millie Small, took the world by storm with 'My Boy Lollipop', the record that gave millions around the world their first taste of Ska. Yet, remarkably, despite the enormous impact of her music, the bulk of her output has remained unreleased officially since the early '70s. Thankfully, Universal are now making up for lost time, presenting this, the first CD collection of the singer's work, comprised of 20 of her best-loved sides for both Fontana and Island. This collection captures the most memorable moments from her career, including her three chart hits 'My Boy Lollipop', 'Sweet William' and 'Bloodshot Eyes' as well as, previously unreleased on all formats, the original instrumental version of 'My Boy Lollipop' cut by Ernest Ranglin and his Orchestra. All brought to life with authentic photos and comprehensive sleeve notes, compiled by the UK's own legend of Reggae, Laurence Cane-Honeysett. Universal.
