tells the story of a unique uk genre that sprang from soundsystem beginnings to mix american soul music with jamaican reggae.

lovers rock exploded in the uk in ‘75, when an ex-caribbean population of producers, artists & audience who had grown up in london, created for the first time a new uniquely british reggae sound. at the forefront of this movement were young black women who became the main stars of lovers rock (janet kay, carroll thompson & louisa marks). it continued to effortlessly absorb & mutate american soul, disco & rare groove styles into a distinctly british reggae sensibility well into the 80’s. the album includes classic & rare tracks & comes with extensive text, as well as interviews with artists, musicians & producers.
