STUDIO ONE Black Man's Pride

Soul Jazz Records


Released: 3rd Nov 2017


2lp + download

Released: 3rd Nov 2017


Here are 18 heavyweight tunes, both classic cuts and super-rare finds, comprised of deep, righteous reggae, featuring Horace Andy, Alton Ellis, The Gladiators, Sugar Minott, The Heptones, Freddie McGregor, Cedric Brooks & more.

this collection illustrates how black pride remained a central theme, if not the defining essence, at the very core of all the music created at Studio One Records under the direction of Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd, created the first black-owned record company in Jamaica. Many of the songs featured here come from the transitory phase in reggae at the start of the 1970s, after the exhilaration of Ska and following the cooling down of Rocksteady. While reggae awaited the arrival of roots, Studio One’s vocalists were already producing some of the moodiest music imaginable.
