      More classic Reggae from Jamaica's most important label ever .

      Studio One Soul tracks the link between American Funk and Soul and Jamaican Reggae at the legendary Studio One Records.

      Curtis Mayfield, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, The Temptations, King Floyd, Booker T and The MGs - all these artists had a huge influence on Jamaican artists and this CD contains versions of songs by all of them. Featuring classic and rare Reggae Funk and Soul cuts from the Reggae giants alongside rarer cuts, Studio One Soul spans over 20 years of classic Reggae from the Rocksteady Funk through to the deep Roots music.

      Following on from Studio One Rockers, this second journey into the vaults of Studio One tells the story of the important link between American Funk and Soul and Jamaican Reggae. Ranging from music taken from the mid-1960s (and the arrival of Rocksteady) through to the beginning of the 1980s, Studio One Soul features versions of US Funk and Soul hits (many rarely heard before) from some of the many classic artists who recorded at Studio One. American Soul music has always been an important influence on Jamaican Reggae.

      The beginning of the Jamaican recording industry at the end of the 1950s started with Clement "Coxsone" Dodd (owner of Studio One) and a group of select in-house musicians (originally The Skatalites) recording their own version of American R'n'B. Playing on the off-beat this music became Ska. As American R'n'B progressed through Funk, Soul and Disco, Jamaican music was going through its own musical changes, from Rocksteady throught to Reggae and Roots music. The house-band at Studio One recorded on a daily basis behind all Studio One vocalists as well as recording instrumentally in its own right.

      Soul singers such as Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions (Queen Of The Minstrels) had a profound influence on Jamaican artists and many other US artists were constantly re-interpreted and re-worked. Artists such as Aretha Franklin (Respect), Charles Wright (Express Yourself), King Floyd (Groove Me), Otis Redding (How Strong) were all very popular in Jamaica in the 1960s. At the end of the 1960s Black Consciousness became an important part of American Soul music. At the same time many Jamaican artists were starting to look to their roots. Many artists would shortly become involved in Rastafarianism. The "conscious" lyrics of American Funk and Soul again struck a chord with Jamaican artists. "Message From A Blackman" (originally by The Temptations) and "Is It Because I'm Black" (Syl Johnson) are examples of this. Through the 1970s Soul/Disco artists such as Barry White ("Can't Get Enough" and "Deeper and Deeper") and The Detroit Spinners ("I'll Be Around") became the flavour of the day. This CD finishes with Willie William's interpretation of Ashford and Simpson's classic "Ain't No Stopping Us Now".

          Horace Andy Meets Naggo Morris & Wayne JarrettMini ShowcaseWackies

          The two Horace Andy cuts nod to Studio One: an interpretation of Little Roy's Prophesy reworks Peanut Vendor with the bebop artfulness of the Sound Dimension; while My Heart Is Gone is a homage to the Ken Boothe classic.

          The under-recorded Naggo Morris — who replaced another Wackie's alumnus, Leroy Sibbles, in The Heptones — is best remembered for his Joe Gibbs 45, Su Su Pon Rasta: here his soulful baritone is in just such searing form, and the track You Rest On My Mind is devastating.

          Wayne Jarrett's opener likewise recasts a reggae evergreen for its rhythm, Keith and Tex' Tonight — but now the music (co-produced by Sugar Minott, either side of the Bubble Up album) is darker and more burnished, with Jarrett's Horace-styled falsetto set off against nyabinghi percussion. Also featured are the only reggae interpretation of Lionel Richie's Truly you might like to hear, and a killer version of Don Carlos' Black Harmony.

                BlowflyDisco (1977)Weird World

                This LP was originally released in 1977 by TK's quiet, P.O. box-driven label Weird World Records - Clarence Reid don's his ultra-vulgar persona as the mighty "Blowfish"! - This record is alternative takes on the disco classics of the day - so overdriven that songwriter Stanley Adams sued Clarence Reid for his version of "What a Diff'rence a Day Makes," to Blowfly's "What a Difference a Lay Makes" even clean cut KC and the Sunshine Band don't escape with Blowfly's version of "Freak Out". South Florida's finest!

                "..Some call him a funk demon, a sex pariah, a freak, a bug that oughta be squashed, his mama calls him Clarence, the original dirty rapper; we call him Blowfly..."
