Oh! Carolina - The Jamaican Chart Hits Of 1961



Released: 24th Jun 2013


The story of how Jamaica's modern recording business developed from being a virtual one-man operation into a global industry has often been told, but never without with a degree of subjectivity - Until now.

The result is a truly fascinating, informative, and most importantly, hugely enjoyable listening experience. Almost all songs featured later became hits for Jamaican acts.
