fashion in fine style - significant hits volume 1

reggae archive


Released: 17th Sep 2012


fashion records effectively defined the UK MC style, dominated the UK lovers rock charts, pioneered the UK ragga sound, & also released roots & dub.

the compilation starts with the labels 1st release & hit, Dee Sharp's 'Let's Dub It Up'. The next 5 tracks continue in a similar lovers vein with Peter Hunnigale, Winsome & Janet Lee-Davis joined by Jamaican legend Alton Ellis. The album keeps up a mellow vibe, but heads in a roots direction with tracks from Nereus Joseph & Jah Mali before Frankie Paul ushers in the dancehall sounds the label was famous for.
