this is the first ever collection of the pioneering British reggae Lovers Rock group Brown Sugar, including rare singles, dubs and extended mixes.

The album comes with extensive sleevenotes and interviews with Dennis Bovell, Pauline Catlin, John Kpiaye and Winston Edwards (Studio 16). Brown Sugar were formed by three young teenage girls - Pauline Catlin, Caron Wheeler and Carol Simms in South London in 1976. In the short period of time 1976-1980, the group recorded barely a handful of singles on the new Lovers Rock label, a number of which went to the top of the UK reggae charts.
