• 1. CD 1 – You Can't Wine + 13 Bonus Tracks
      • 2. CD 2 – Music Alone Shall Live + 12 Bonus Tracks

      Featuring two of the most collectable early reggae LPs of all time. Both albums new to CD. Includes some of the biggest Jamaican hits of the late Sixties and early Seventies. Among those at the vanguard of the reggae explosion that took the music world by storm in the late Sixties and early Seventies was performer- turned producer, Rupie Edwards.

      Having launched the aptly named Success Records in 1968, his productions regularly graced the local charts, with the popularity of his work prompting Britain’s leading reggae company, Trojan Records to gather a dozen of his best-known productions on the now extremely collectable 1970 LP, You Can’t Wine. Soon after, the London-based operation scheduled a follow-up compilation, Music Alone Shall Live, but for reasons now lost in the mists of time, the album failed to receive an official UK release, only seeing issue in limited numbers in Jamaica.

      Now, after almost half a century, both of these insanely rare and collectable long-players finally receive their long overdue re-release, with their contents further bolstered by the very best of Rupie Edwards’ remaining output from the period. It features Winston Wright and The Rupie Edwards All Stars, Bob Andy, Gregory Isaacs, John Holt, Rupie Edwards, The Concords, Dobby Dobson, The Itals and more.
