Studio One Roots Vol. 3 – Various

Sold out
Condition: Brand New


Third part of the Roots-Reggae compilation from the house of Soul JazzRoots-Reggae
experiences a big upswing in the 1970s in the course of the increased black self-confidence and the growing Rastafari movement. Flanked by the international success of Bob Marley and Burning Spear (who both began their careers in Studio One), Roots became the most important current
within reggae.

As early as the early 1960s, Studio One founder Coxsone Dodd made his way to Count Osie's Rastafari community in the Wareika Hills of Jamaica, where Rastafari drummers played with the horn section of the Skatalites. In return, Count Ossie performed during Sir Coxsone's dancehall sessions.

With "Studio One Roots 3" a new episode with roots music from the Studio One archives is now available. In addition to classic acts like Prince Lincoln and Count Ossie, rare recordings from the label's treasure troves can also be heard. Also included are Studio One's various house bands such as Sound Dimension, the Soul Defenders and the Brentford Road All-Stars.
