VariousCoxone's Music – First Recordings Of Sir Coxone The Downbeat 1960 to 1963 (3CD set) ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy 3CD ... $23.99
An incredible set of music – the roots of so many sounds to come in Jamaica, all pulled from the early pre-Studio One recordings of the legendary Clement Dodd! The music here is much more strongly tied to American styles – and in fact, some cuts could easily pass for soul and R&B – but other cuts show a very strong island influence early on, with roots of some other West Indian sounds filtering down to groove that's already coalescing into the classic sound of Kingston! We've loved Dodd's productions for many years – but this set is still a real ear-opener for us, given the range of material that we'd never heard before – and the richly detailed notes from Soul Jazz, which tell the tale of the brilliant birth of Jamaican music that would shape the rest of the world for generations to come. 3CD set is overflowing with music – 46 tracks that include "Over The River" by Jiving Juniors, "Answer Me" by Derrick Harriott, "Do You Know" by Owen & Millie, "What A World" by Busty & Cool, "Counter Punch" by Roland Alphonso, "Pine Juice" by Clue J & His Blues Blasters, "Oceans 11" by City Slickers, "Serenade In Sound" by Workshop Musicians, "Best Twist" by Owen Gray, "Dew Drops" by Don Drummond, "Independence Blues" by Basil Gabbidon, "Searching" by Simms & Robinson, "Romantic Shuffle" by The Shinners, and "I Do" by Neville Esson.

✨✧ VariousStudio One Jump Up – The Birth Of A Sound – Jump-Up Jamaican R&B, Jazz, & Early Ska ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The early 60s roots of the Studio One sound – tight Jamaican R&B, nascent ska and killer tunes galore – on one of the greatest Soul Jazz forays into the Studio One archives in years! All of the tracks on Studio One Jump Up were recorded in the first half of the 60s, and the majority in the first couple years of the decade – and it's a wonderful blend of American rhythm & blues-influenced, though distinctly Jamaican music – it really is the birth of reggae to come. Incredible early recordings by soon-to-be Jamaican musical lynchpins including the Skatalites, formative work by Derrick Harriott, Bob Marley, Derrick Morgan, Lord Creator and more! Includes "Mr. Landlord" by Basil Gabbidon, "Wigger We Shuffle" by Derrick Morgan, "Wicked And Dreadful" by Neville Esson, "Rhythm Of The Blues" by Lord Creator, "Hip Rub" by The Jivin Juniors, "Walk All Over" by Owen Gray", "Heaven And Earth" by Don Drummond & Roland Alphonso, "Go Jimmy Go" by a very young Bob Marley & The Wailers, "The Slider" by Clue J And The Blues Blasters and more. 20 tracks in all.
