'The Legendary Studio One Records' is the first new Soul Jazz/Studio One album release in nearly four years and is released to coincide with the launch of the new mighty 200-page deluxe 12"x12" hard-back book Cover Art of Studio One Records (100s of stunning classic and super-rare sleeves as well as an introduction by Steve Barrow) also released on Soul Jazz Records this autumn.
This album here is a lightning roller coaster musical journey through the music of Studio One, the most important record company in the history of Jamaican reggae music. Ska and Rock Steady feature from the greatest names in reggae: The Skatalites, The Maytals, Marcia Griffiths and The Heptones alongside vocal and roots styles from Horace Andy, Willie Williams and Wailing Souls, DJ and dancehall styles from Michigan and Smiley, Prince Jazzbo and Lone Ranger, plus some wicked instrumental and dub. It's all here! 100% essential foundation style.
'The Legendary Studio One Records' kick starts a new set of releases from the mighty vaults of Studio One Records. Expect the next one at the end of the year!
