Description

Selected with love: hot lover's rock from Jamaica's reggae label No. 1The
cooperation between the fine London reissue label Soul Jazz Records and Studio One Records leads to ever new rediscoveries. So does "Studio One Lovers". Lovingly compiled, the compilation unites the hottest lover's rock tracks from Jamaica's probably most famous label. In London, Bristol and Birmingham one of the most interesting musical movements in England was created in the mid 70s. Sweet harmonies, soulful reggae, love songs - the ingredients of Lover's Rock - were based on the revival of many classic Rocksteady groups such as The Heptones, Carlton and The Shoes, Larry & Alvin and The Paragons. Studio-One producer Clement "Sir Coxsone" Dodd and Duke Reid of the Treasure Isle label landed one hit after the other and fought for dominance in Kingston's dance halls. In addition to those classic harmony groups, "Studio One Lovers" features contributions from some of the greats of reggae such as Horace Andy, Alton Ellis, Bob Marley and The Wailers and Delroy Wilson.
