Shocks Of Mighty is great collection that has faded away as newer compilations have re-released most of this material with better sound quality. It's a solid collection of tunes, spanning the pre- and early Black Ark years. Highlights include the berserk "Tackro", Bunny Clarke's dubbed out version of "Be Thankful", the outstanding "Civilization" by The Classics, and – of course – Dave Barker's thundering "Shocks Of Mighty".
