The Greensleeves `Most Wanted? series continues with a fantastic collection of tracks from Ranking Dread who released five 12" singles on Greensleeves from 1981-1982. All are compiled here for the first time alongside five heavyweight dub versions that appeared on the B-sides of the original 12? pressings.

Ranking Dread grew up in the Jamaican ghettos of Rema and Tivoli and started his career on the Ray Symbolic sound system in the 70s before making his name as a top ranking DJ and producer with recordings alongside Dennis Brown, Sugar Minott, Tappa Zukie, Errol Dunkley, Cornel Campbell and Junior Delgado.

Ranking Dread had a huge hit with "Love a Dub" and later hit the UK Top 25 in 1981 with the huge hit "Fattie Boom Boom" which sold 13,000 copies.

All the tracks featured on this compilation were produced by Ranking Dread, with the exception of "Jean Green" which was produced by Henry ?Junjo? Lawes and feature the talents of Sly & Robbie, Roots Radics, Jackie Mittoo and Scientist.
