Soul Jazz Records

2lp + dl

Released: 22nd Jan 2016


brings together a new fine selection of classic tracks from Horace Andy, Freddy McGregor, Johnny Osbourne, Lone Ranger, Sugar Minott, The Heptones, Wailing Souls & other seminal reggae artists all recorded at Studio One in the 1970s.

  The 1970s were to be Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd’s most challenging & yet ultimately most creative decade of all. Like the most zealous & resourceful of pioneers, Studio One was about to embark on a stunning era of reinvention, adaptation, stripping down & versioning, each step of which marked new musical developments in reggae music - roots reggae, deejay, dancehall, rub a dub & more. This album presents an overview of this exciting & ground-breaking decade of the 1970s at Studio One, during an era where Dodd was able to maintain his position as the pioneering leader in reggae music & to maintain Studio One as the number one sound in reggae music.
