1973-1976 was a period in Reggae’s history when the music coming from Kingston, Jamaica was at its peak.

Maybe it was the competition between the studios like Randys, Channel 1 and Harry J’s and the quality of the singers available to sing these tunes - whatever caused the explosion, the mighty voices of Horace Andy, Cornell Campbell, Johnny Clarke and Ronnie Davis never sounded better.... The tracks as you can see here were culled together from sessions recorded at the fore mentioned legendary studios Then taken to King Tubby’s home style studio at 18 Drummlie Ave in the Waterhouse district of Kingston. This is where the great Dubmaster himself would record the vocal tracks -A method in which he preferred to work and then mix the tracks Tubby style...
