"Conference at Waterhouse your destination King Tubby's studio" intones Jah Stitch at the beginning of the album over a tough version of the 'Satta Dread' rhythm.

The Micron label is perhaps not as instantly well known as some of its more celebrated counterparts but any half decent reggae collection will have more than a couple of Micron records sitting in it. Production is crisp throughout with Lee Perry, Bunny Lee and Pete Weston (one of the trio that ran the Micron label) at the controls.

As usual we have sourced tracks that offer music fans something a little extra and unearthed some overlooked gems that are not only very rare but also touch the soul. Was there a better singer from Jamaica than Junior Byles ? He's up there with the best and 'Lorna Banana' and 'Ain't Too Proud To Beg' are two of his finest. The super rare track from The Defenders 'Our Rights' is a real roots vocal harmony classic. I Roy, who needs little by way of introduction, was probably the most consistent deejay that Jamaica ever produced and it is his 'Every Mouth Must Be Fed' that gives the album its name.

This is a crackling compilation with all the usual Pressure Sounds graphics, photos, interviews and re-mastered tracks presenting the music at its very best. 'Micron Music Presents' puts the focus on a label that really was important both as a label and as a business; it allowed many producers and artists a creative opening that would otherwise have been denied to them. Enjoy it. It's a fine album
