You too can be as happy as that young man on the sleeve. All you need to do is hit Add To Basket. Soul Jazz’ latest exploration into the Coxsone vaults yields yet more earthly delights. This time, we go early to the Roots stage: 59-63. Featuring early material by Roland Alphonso, Don Drummond, Tommy McCook (all of whom would form The Skatalites), Toots and The Maytals, young singers such as Bob Marley and The Wailers, Delroy Wilson, Owen Gray all captured in their formative days. The music here spans a wealth of styles - Jamaican rhythm and blues, jazz, gospel, proto-ska, Rastafarian - all of which were drawn upon to create the future sounds of Jamaican reggae. The Reggae Mothership awakes. Get on board.
