V.A. - STUDIO ONE JUMP-UP. THE BIRTH OF A SOUND: JUMP-UP JAMAICAN R & B, JAZZ AND EARLY SKA (2LP)


"New Studio One release featuring loads of killer tunes. Includes booklet text and lots of nice pix! In the early releases featured here you will find the roots of Studio One's unique sound - from the first jump-up, boogie-woogie and shuffle recordings made in Jamaica in the late 1950s, as the artists emulated their American rhythm and blues idols - Louis Jordan, Roscoe Gordon, Fats Domino - through to the early Rastafari rhythms of Count Ossie, the righteous Baptist beat of Toots and the Maytals up to the joyous excitement of Ska with tracks by Studio One's young protégées Bob Marley and The Wailers and the all-mighty Skatalites. As well as those listed above, this album brings together some of the finest of these early reggae artists to record for Clement Dodd including Derrick Morgan, Owen Gray, Derrick Harriott, Lord Creator and Owen Gray."
