Reggae from Studio One: Homage to the cool guys of JamaicaThe
term "Rude Boy" originated in the early 1960s in Kingston, Jamaica, and refers to young, male hipsters in dance halls who - inspired by American gangster chic and US soul stars - presented themselves in the coolest possible clothes. The Rude Boy (or Rudy) soon defined the image of dancehalls not only in Jamaica, but also in England and the USA. On "Studio One Rude Boy" the label Soul Jazz Records presents the best songs about the cool guys of Jamaica from the archives of Studio One. The palette ranges from Ska, Rocksteady, DJs Roots and Dub and goes back to the early days of Sir Coxsone Dodd and Duke Reid. Besides tracks by The Wailers, John Holt and Dennis Brown, there are rare studio-one treasures by Mr Foundation, Dudley Sibbley and The Soul Brothers. All 18 songs were digitally reworked, the CD is released as usual with liner notes and many photos.


F. Sawatzki in Musikexpress 12 / 06: "The charm of this train the rarities are what make up the collection. Mr. Foundations like super cool "See Them A Come" or Dudley Sibby's crunchy soul reggae "Run Boy Run". The "Murderers" - and "Hooligan" classics are not missing, nor are Rudie tracks by the Wailers and Dennis Brown."
