Jah Guidance issued a totally different companion album in Jamaica on their label...It used the same sleeve and track listing as the Greensleeves disc but featured ten totally different Barrington Levy dubs, also mixed at King Tubby's studio. Although both discs featured dubs of the tracks 'Reggae Music,' 'Looking My Love' and 'Black Heart Man,' each mix on the Jah Guidance release is distinctly different from that of any other release ever issued; the mixes here are much sparser and rawer, aimed as they were at the Jamaican market. The original Jamaican dub mixes that appeared on the Jah Guidance album have remained an obscure and long sought after dub rarity.

If you score the Jah Guidance versions of these Scientists LPs, don't expect to find the same fidelity as in Greensleeves pressings. The Jah Guidance pressings can be pretty rough.
