Fantastic! This set features reggae and rocksteady versions of American soul and funk tracks from the late 60s and early 70s – quite fitting, considering how much of Jamaican reggae began as an attempt to copy American hits for the local market. The set may well be the best-ever in the essential series of compilations by Soul Jazz Records – and like the others, it features some of the best cuts ever recorded for the Studio One catalog. There's a total of 18 cuts in all – and tracks include "Soulful Strut" by Sound Dimension, "Still Water" by Jerry Jones, "Express Yourself" by Leroy Sibbles, "Message From A Black Man" by The Heptones, "The First Cut Is The Deepest" by Norma Fraser, "Deeper & Deeper" by Jackie Mitoo, "I Don't Want To Be Right" by Alton Ellis, "No One Can Stop Us" by Willie Williams, "Queen Of The Minstrals" by The Eternals, "Don't Break Your Promise" by The Chosen Few, and "Is It Because I'm Black" by Senior Soul.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cool Down
Clocktower, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
As you may already know, Lindval Thompson loves to smoke marijuana, but he's quite the singer too! With a smooth mellow voice, he delivers the roots message here, over easy, loping rhythms from the Aggrovators featuring Robbie Shakespeare, Santa Davis, Chinna Smith, Ossie Hibbert, Augustus Pablo ...
