7 inch singles were instrumental to the development of the Jamaican musicindustry, more affordable than full lengths for the consumer, they also allowedthe labels to turnaround what was being recorded into music played from theirbooming sound systems as quickly as possible. In that spirit, Get On Down willbe reissuing some of the most crucial reggae and ska sides on 45.This issue marks a slight departure in the series as Symarip were not aJamaican group but had their origins in the UK. By the time SkinheadMoonstomp was released as a single in 1969, reggae had spread its influenceinto the UK to such an extent that it changed British music for good. Symaripwere the first group to work to directly appeal to UK skinhead culture, creatingthe climate that allowed for the explosion of the two tone movement in the late1970s. Yet it was only on the singles’ reissue in 1980 that the cut hit the UKcharts, landing at #54. So, to paraphrase the song’s intro, get up on your feet,put your braces together and your boots on your feet, it’s time again for someof that old moonstompin’.”

Studio One Freedom Sounds is the new collection from Soul Jazz/ Studio One focussing on the intense period in the second half of the 1960s when Studio One’s vast and unbeatable output of ska, soul, rock steady and reggae made it literally one of the hottest musical empires in the world.During this highly successful period, Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd released hundreds and hundreds of superlative singles seemingly on an almost daily basis, in the process making huge stars out of Jamaican singers such as Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, The Wailers, Slim Smith, Jackie Opel and many more. Powered by the finest in-house musicians working in Jamaica, whether it was The Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo’s Soul Brothers, The Sounds Dimension or The Soul Vendors, Studio One functioned as hit factory on the scale of Motown in the USA, shaping and defining reggae music for decades to come. Singlehandedly Studio One’s founder Clement Dodd was able to create the most successful vertically-integrated record company that Jamaica had ever known with pressing plant, printers, studio, shops, and sound systems all running at once, with over 50 employees and hundreds of artists working with Studio One during this time.Studio One Freedom Sounds tells the story of Studio One in the 1960s with a stunning set of ska, soul, rock steady and reggae killer tunes as well as informative sleevenotes and track-by-track info by Noel Hawks. The album is released as heavyweight double vinyl (+ free download code), deluxe CD and digital album.

Soul Jazz Records’ new journey into the mighty vaults of Clement Dodd’s Studio One steps once more into the fertilemusical environment of Jamaican music in the late 1960s and early 1970s, from the sweet harmony vocals ofseminal 1960s Rocksteady right up to the nascent birth of Reggae and Roots music at the start of the 1970s.Sleevenotes to this album are by Steve Barrow, author of ‘Rough Guide to Reggae’ as well as Soul Jazz Records’ own‘Reggae Soundsystem Cover Art’ books.While Ska at the start of the 1960s had taken American Rhythm and Blues as its main influence, Rocksteady focusedon the emergence of American Soul music – with Jamaican vocal harmony groups such as The Gaylads, John Holt &The Paragons, Carlton & The Shoes showing a particular fascination with the close harmonies of Curtis Mayfield andThe Impressions and other US Soul acts. Here The Heptones even feature with a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘I Shall BeReleased’.The influence of Soul music on Jamaican Rocksteady and Reggae is almost palpable, so much so that one wondershow much more successful singers like Delroy Wilson, Alton Ellis, Slim Smith and John Holt would have been hadthey been born in Chicago, Detroit or Memphis.Artists such as Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson and Owen Gray defined the era – a slowed down beat as Jamaican politicaland social heat slowly increased when the 1960s progressed into the start of the 1970s – and the music evolvedfurther from Rocksteady into Roots Reggae.

GuteEntscheidung: Tequila & the Sunrise Gang beweisen mit multiinstrumentalemReggae-Rock-Sound und fulminanten Live-Auftritten imVorprogramm der Mad Caddies (USA), bei Babylon Circus (Frankreich)oder Panteón Rococó (Mexiko), dass "Welle machen" kein reines SurferDingist. Auch wenn der Sound treibender daherkommt, steht die 7-Köpfige Gang von der Kieler Küste den Beach Boys in Sachen gute Launein Nichts nach. Bei Live-Auftritten brechen Tequila über ihr Publikumherein wie ein wild zuckender Party-Tsunami: neben Gitarren, Bass,Drums und einer dreiköpfigen Bläser-Sektion kommen auchGlockenspiel, Mini-Klavier und Melodica zum Einsatz.

Winston ‘Niney’ Holmes AKA The Observer, must be one of Reggaes finest Roots Rebel producers. Capable of making some of the heaviest, innovative music, not only in sound but also in the Cultural/Political sense.Born George Boswell, Montego Bay, Jamaica 1951, and name checked ‘Niney’ due to losing a thumb in a workshop accident. He began his career in music by organising bands to play at school dances. But his first steps learning the musical ropes came working under the tutelage of producer Bunny Lee around 1967, organising sessions for Bunny’s stable of artists. He moved on to work alongside Lee Perry at Joe Gibb’s ‘Amalgamated’ label setup, where on Lee Perry’s leaving in 1969 to start his own ‘Upsetter’ label, Niney became chief engineer.Inspired by Perry’s success it wasn’t long before his own ‘Destroyer’ label was under way. It was 1970, and his first production entitled ‘Mr Brown’ by DJ’s Dennis Alcapone and Lizzy, proved to be a minor hit, but his own ‘Blood and Fire’ track released in December of that year would become a major hit. After initial problems with it’s likeness to Bob Marley’s track ‘ Duppy Conqueror’ being ironed out, it’s reissue on his now named ‘Observer’ label, saw it go on to become, Jamaican Record of the Year 1971. Far out selling Bob Marley’s track to the tune of 30,000 copies in Jamaica alone. A roots classic…Niney’s reputation for building great roots tracks, was furthered with more success working with singer Max Romeo. Issuing cuts such as ‘Beard Man Feast’, the great ‘Reggae Matic’ and ‘Aily Ailaloo’ and renewing his friendship with Lee Perry on the track ‘Rasta Band Wagon’, who’s production credit read Perry, Niney, Maxie. In 1973, Niney began working with Dennis Brown, who was already an established star from an early age, they found a chemistry that went on to produce some of Dennis’ finest work. The 1973 hit ‘Westbound Train’ was followed in 1974 by ‘Cassandra’, ‘I am the Conqueror’ and the timeless ‘No More Shall I rOam’. Another important connection around this time was the great King Tubby who Niney would take his tapes along to and even record some of his tracks at Tubby’s house, 18 Drummlie Avenue, Kingston, which doubles as his Studio of Dub.It’s these tracks that we are concentrating on here. Tubby would strip the tracks back to the bone and rebuild then sometimes leaving off the hook line. Whether that be the horn line or keyboard line and adding effects over the top that could disguise the cut even more. Even Niney stating that when Tubby had finished with a cut, he found it hard to recognise the track himself. Its these tracks as dub plate specials that Tubby would play on his Hometown HI-FI Sound System and it’s these such tracks that we have compiled for this release. Dub Plated that have not seen the light of day since tragically the great Osborne Ruddock AKA King Tubby was gunned won and murdered on the 06th December 1989. For a few dollars and a gold chain, reggae music has lost one of it’s most creative, inventive forces.Niney also cut tracks with many other Reggae giants such as Gregory Issacs, Michael Rose, Junior Delgado, Horace Andy and Delroy Wilson to name but a few. As in house producer at the legendry Channel Studios and supervising sessions at Dynamic and Randy’s Studio 17, his magic touched many. DJ, Arranger, Producer, his Roots Rebel music still stands the test of time.Hope you enjoy the set…..

Soul Stomp' zeigt nicht nur, wie unglaublich einfühlsam die Niderländer Rocksteady-Klassikerinterpretieren, wie entspannt und doch respektvoll sie mit dem wertvollen Erbe der 60er Jahre umgehen, sondern es wird gleichermaßendeutlich, dass sie sich auch in den Eigenkompositionen perfekt in die Zeit hineinversetzen können. Eine zusätzliche Würze und damit aucheine Erklärung für den Titel erhält das Album durch Songs wie 'The Punch', die mit ihrem souligen Groove eine weitere Stärke der Bandzum Vorschein bringen. Die 18 Stücke sind überwiegend Vokalnummern, die auch durch raffinierte und vielseitige Gesänge auf'sAngenehmste auffallen...

Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Viel hilft viel. Wer das nicht glaubt, war noch nie bei einem Konzertvon Tequila & the Sunrise Gang. Die acht-köpfge Kombo aus Kielpustet ihr Publikum mit einem Mix aus Reggae, Rock und Ska ausden Socken. Das nutzten auch schon Bands wie die Mad Caddies,Less than Jake und die Beatsteaks, die sich das Live-Monster ausdem Norden ins Vorprogramm holten. Mit Gitarren, Drums, Bass,Orgel, Posaunen, Saxophon und Trompeten überrollen Tequila &the Sunrise Gang ihr Publikum wie ein multiinstrumentaler SoundWirbelsturm.Ebenso vielfältig wie die Musik sind die Texte: Siehandeln von Partys und Jugend-Erinnerungen, aber auch von derVerschmutzung der Meere und sozialer Ungerechtigkeit. Am 20.April 2018 erscheint das fünfte Studioalbum der Band. "Of Pals andHearts" ist wie seine Vorgänger höchst tanzbar, schlägt aber auchruhige Töne an. "2017 war ein krasses Jahr für mich. Privat, aberauch in Bezug auf das Weltgeschehen", erklärt Front-mann RenéUnger. "Fürs Songwriting gibt es nichts Besseres als heftigeEmotionen - egal aus welcher Richtung." Zum Schreiben wurde sichin die Heimat zurückgezogen. Ein Grossteil der Texte entstand2017 in Schönberg, in unmittelbarer Strandnähe und mit Blick in dieNatur. Das hört und sieht man. Album-Cover und Song-Auswahlspiegeln den Kampf zwischen Wut und Euphorie, Ruhe und Sturmwieder. Das Live-Recording von Drums, Bass und Gitarre tun ihrÜbriges: "Of Pals and Hearts" ist ein mitreissender Orkan, der insHerz und in die Beine geht. Neben ernsten Themen wie Trauer,Flüchtlingspolitik und Umweltverschmutzung ist "Of Pals andHearts" vor allem eine Ode an die Freundschaft. "Egal, wie beklopptdie Welt ist, mit Freunden bietest du dem schlimmsten Sturm dieStirn, reisst das Ruder herum", so Unger. Nach einer gemeinsamenJugend am Strand von "Kieilfornia" ein mehr als passendes Themaum 16 Jahre Bandgeschichte zu feiern.

Die baskische Ska / Reggae-Institution mit einer wunderschönen 10“ EP und sechseigenwilligen Coverversionen auf Liquidator.Schon mit der ersten Folge „A Go Go“ (2010) hat das Oktett aus Bilbao seinen Fans eine großeFreude gemacht: die damals gecoverten Songs sind immer noch stets geforderte Hits in derSetlist und inzwischen Liveklassiker. Akatz, die die jamaikanische Musik der 50er bis 70er mitihrem eigenen kulturellen Hintergrund zu einer inspirierten, stets in Spanisch und Baskischvorgetragenen Melange zusammenbringen, haben sich im Frühjahr 2017 mit dem gleichen„research and development“-Geist ins Studio begeben. Nicht nur dem Reggae und Ska naheOriginale wurden bearbeitet, aber Michael Jacksons „Black Or White“ macht hier eineüberraschend gute Figur, genau so wie Verbeugungen vor den Vorbildern Kingstonians(„Muévelo“) oder Prince Buster („Paga Lo Que Me Debes“). Ein Tribute und Cover zugleichist „No Te Conviene“ (Thelonious Monk). Insgesamt sechs wunderbare Songs, die dieLeidenschaft und Spielfreude der baskiaschen Genre-Veteranen genau so zeigen wie derenRespekt vor den Wurzeln der Musik, gepaart mit neugierigem Drang zur Transzendenz.

While filming in Trinidad in 1957, Robert Mitchum soaked up local music talent like Lord Melody and Mighty Sparrow, resulting in this amazing experiment of pure Caribbean calypso in which the number one icon of Hollywood coolness insists on imitating the broken English of many of the original calypso artists (this is 'dis' and 'the' is often dropped), while singing a bunch of traditional Caribbean songs (complete with the requisite steel drums, congas and backing horns) along with a few Elvis-styled rockers. 180 gram LP + download code.

Release:1982 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Some of S&G Records' greatest shots were produced by Sugar Minott, and Dolphin 'Naggo' Morris' obscure roots scorcher 'A True You Na Know' was reportedly first released in Jamaica in 1978 on Sugar's Black Roots label, though when it was issued by S&G in 1982 with a different mix and with the equally appealing 'Going Places' on the A-side, production was somehow credited to the otherwise unknown Sandle Fay Music. In any case, both sides are thoroughly excellent, with each song featuring somegreat wah-wah guitar from Sowell Radics and a plaintive saxophone line that emphasize the melancholy feel of the tracks, as the sometime Heptones member Morris sings out his frustration. Great extended dub workouts follow the vocals.

It was to be expected that, sooner or later, someone would give recognition to these two key artists, Roy Panton and Yvonne Harrison, central to understanding Jamaican music and its evolution. For some time, all over the world, thousands of followers and lovers of these Jamaican rhythms have tried, sometimes with luck and some with dismay, to get some of the recordings presented here today on vinyl, in what is the first compilation dedicated to Roy Panton & Yvonne Harrison.Roy Panton started his musical career at an early age, and after finishing school, decided to take his passion for music and the stage more seriously. In late 1950, Roy and Stranger Cole auditioned for Duke Reid. They subsequently recorded their first work titled “Freedom Land / Adam & Eve” under the name “The Rovers”, a name that they would not be using again given that, after the recording, each went their separate ways. Unfortunately, the recording never saw the light of day.Roy recorded some songs with Monty Morris in the studio of C.C. Dood. So, by suggestion of “Sir Coxone”, Roy Panton and Millie Small started singing together and became one of the most prolific duos of the island, leaving behind many recordings under the name “Roy and Millie”. Some of these you can find on this LP. Unfortunately, after Millie’s departure to England under the management of Chris Blackwell, Roy found himself without a partner. However, this should not be for long.In the autumn of 1962, discovered by TIP TOP Label’s Lynden Pottinger, Yvonne and Roy met for the first time at the West Indies Studios (WIRL) of Edward Seaga and recorded their first ever single, “Two Roads” with the B-side “Join together”. The magnificent performance of both, and perfect compatibility of their voices “joint together” Roy and Yvonne in what would be one of the most requested duets in the country.INFORMATION

Release:2017 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
The Sound of Studio One can be identified by the great singers that it cultivated along the many great songs that these singers released. But as studio 1’s dominance was slowly pulled away by the up and coming new breed of producers many of the artists would inevitably end up working for these new camps and so the songs and singers found a new audience. The reggae sound of the Studio 1 would make a great combination and the man to pull this was together Bunny Lee.The 1960’s in Jamaica was run by two main factions, Coxsonne’s Studio 1 and Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle. These two leading protagonists saw what some of the other great Sound System men like ‘ Tom The Great Sebastian’ had not taken onboard, that when the tunes they imported began to dry up from the USA, their future lied in producing music. Tunes that suited the musical styles that the people of Jamaica still enjoyed. By the late 1960’s thse supremacy was being challenged by the up and coming new producers on the scene, Lee Perry being one, and the other being ‘Ghost of the Studios’ himself, Bunny Lee. Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee may have inherited the moniker ‘Striker’ from his liking of a particular TV show called ‘The Hitch-Hiker’, but it would soon stand also for the considerable hits he would obtain as he was declared producer of the year in Jamaica in 1969, 1970,1971 and 1972.For this release, we have compiled many of the great Studio hits that Bunny Lee recorded with the singers that had originally cut at the famed Studio 1. Bunny Lee’s sprinkling of magic over some classic tunes….the sound of Studio 1 backed up this time Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee’s set of star musicians The Aggravators. Proving you can’t keep a good tune down, or a great producer pushing forward…..Bunny Lee strikes back….Hope you enjoy the set…..
