VA - Soul Jazz Records Presents Studio One Women (DOLP)
Limited Edition,Special Coloured VinylStudio One Women is in the series of Studio One compilations released by Soul Jazz Records. Ska, rocksteady, funky reggae, roots, dub mixes, disco mixes, they're all here from the queens of the Jamaican music scene. Studio One Women features a wide mix of classics and obscurities from the finest female voices in reggae. Until now most of these tracks have only ever been available as extremely hard to find Jamaican 7 inch and 12 inch singles and even if you were lucky enough to find them they'd cost you a small fortune! Marcia Griffiths and Rita Marley (here with her first group The Soulettes) are two of Jamaica's most famous female singers hugely popular today. Both these artists became internationally famous as The I – Threes (along with Judy Mowatt), Bob Marley's backing singers alongside The Wailers. Also featured are Hortense Ellis, sister of Alton who cut many smash hit on the island and Jennifer Lara, a lady who had a long career with Studio One, singing on countless sides until she sadly passed away earlier this year. Studio One is the greatest label in the history of reggae and is the foundation of all reggae music. It's where virtually every world renowned Jamaican superstar started out, Bob Marley and The Wailers included. Under the guidance of the legendary Clement "Coxsone" Dodd the musicians at Studio One recorded hundreds of instrumental rhythms which still provide the backbone for many of the records made in Jamaica today.

VA - Wanted And Needed (LP)
WELCOME TO Wanted And Needed, a Northern Soul playlist befitting of any discerning DJ and one that would happily slot into any Soul Night, All-Nighter or Weekender today.Some of our discs were first spun as far back as the Twisted Wheel, such as The Precisions’ floorpacker “If This Is Love”. Others were unreleased at the time of recording and have found favour in more recent times, such as The Persianettes “Run Run” (originally covered up as “You Better Get Away” by The Sequins). Also unreleased at the time was Pearl Jones’ infectious “Give Me Another Chance”, a Sidra recording that finally surfaced in 2001 on a company acetate. Jones also appears here on her own composition “Let My Baby Go” as a member of the Embraceables. Another of our featured tracks that eluded the Northern Soul scene at the time is Joey Delorenzo’s feel-good “Wake Up To The Sunshine Girl” issued in 1973 on the tiny Mi-Val label but sounds much earlier and probably is. The unknown Delorenzo was reputedly a local car salesman with a passion to become a recording artist. He finally got his 3 minutes 15 seconds of fame in return for a generous deal down at the lot!Our playlist kicks off with a real heavyweight of the UK Rare Soul scene, our title track, the legendary “Just Say You’re Wanted (And Needed)” by Gwen Owens. A flop in America, it wasn’t until 1976 that this – already rare – 45 finally made it to these shores and shook the Casino walls. The action is relentless with 100% floorpackers courtesy of The Precisions, Tony Galla, The Capreez, Ronnie And Robyn with their vocal to “Sidras Theme”, The Falcons, and Mickey Lee Lane (aka Sounds Of Lane) with his raucous instrumental “Tracks To Your Mind”.Outta Sight

VA - Power House Selector's Choice George Phang (DOLP)
George Phang is a reggae producer born in South Saint Andrew, Kingston, Jamaica in the 1950s. Phang founded his reggae record label Powerhouse in early 1980. His first hits were Little John's "Confessions" and "Roots Girl", both released in 1983. He followed this success with Sugar Minott's "Buy off the Bar" and Barrington Levy's "Money Move", both of which became the biggest hits of the year. In the summer of 1984 he released Michael Palmer's song "Lick Shot" which became one of the biggest songs of the summer. Phang recorded many of the most successful dance stars of the 1980s. The super hit "Greetings" by Half Pint was released on Powerhouse in 1986. Conroy Smith's first song "Indian Lady" was also released on Phang's label. Other artists he worked with were Josey Wales, Freddie McGregor, Nitty Gritty, Tenor Saw, Little John, Brigadier Jerry, Barrington Levy, Admiral Bailey, Al Campbell, Charlie Chaplin, Cutty Ranks, Dominic, Echo Minott, Frankie Paul, Gregory Isaacs, John Wayne, Yellowman, Supercat and General Echo. Phang mainly used riddims produced by Sly and Robbie, which gave him an edge over other producers, and his sound is characterised by the extensive use of reverb on the snare drums. Phang was an important influence on Philip "Fatis" Burrell's entry into music production.....

VA - Soul Jazz Records Presents Studio One Soul (RSD 21) (DOLP)
Following on from Studio One Rockers comes Studio One Soul which 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 selection finishes with Willie William's interpretation of Ashford and Simpson's classic "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" Nach Studio One Rockers folgt nun Studio One Soul, das die Verbindung zwischen amerikanischem Funk und Soul und jamaikanischem Reggae bei den legendären Studio One Records nachzeichnet. Curtis Mayfield, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, The Temptations, King Floyd, Booker T and The MGs - all diese Künstler hatten einen großen Einfluss auf jamaikanische Künstler und diese CD enthält Versionen von Songs von ihnen allen. Mit klassischen und seltenen Reggae-Funk- und Soul-Stücken der Reggae-Giganten sowie selteneren Stücken umfasst Studio One Soul mehr als 20 Jahre klassischen Reggae, vom Rocksteady-Funk bis hin zur tiefgründigen Roots-Musik. Nach Studio One Rockers erzählt diese zweite Reise in die Gewölbe von Studio One die Geschichte der wichtigen Verbindung zwischen amerikanischem Funk und Soul und jamaikanischem Reggae. Der Bogen spannt sich von der Mitte der 1960er Jahre (und dem Aufkommen von Rocksteady) bis zum Beginn der 1980er Jahre,Studio One Soul enthält Versionen von US-Funk- und Soul-Hits (viele davon selten zuvor gehört) von einigen der vielen klassischen Künstler, die im Studio One aufgenommen haben. Die amerikanische Soul-Musik war schon immer ein wichtiger Einfluss auf den jamaikanischen Reggae. Die Anfänge der jamaikanischen Musikindustrie begannen Ende der 1950er Jahre mit Clement "Coxsone" Dodd (Besitzer von Studio One) und einer Gruppe ausgewählter Hausmusiker (ursprünglich The Skatalites), die ihre eigene Version des amerikanischen R'n'B aufnahmen. Diese Musik, die auf dem Offbeat spielt, wurde zu Ska. Während sich der amerikanische R'n'B über Funk, Soul und Disco weiterentwickelte, durchlief die jamaikanische Musik ihre eigenen musikalischen Veränderungen, von Rocksteady bis hin zu Reggae und Roots Music. Die Hausband von Studio One nahm täglich hinter allen Sängern von Studio One auf und machte auch eigene Instrumentalaufnahmen. Soulsänger wie Curtis Mayfield und The Impressions (Queen Of The Minstrels) hatten einen großen Einfluss auf jamaikanische Künstler, und viele andere US-Künstler wurden immer wieder neu interpretiert und überarbeitet. Künstler wie Aretha Franklin (Respect), Charles Wright (Express Yourself), King Floyd (Groove Me), Otis Redding (How Strong) waren in den 1960er Jahren in Jamaika sehr beliebt. Ende der 1960er Jahre wurde Black Consciousness ein wichtiger Bestandteil der amerikanischen Soulmusik.Zur gleichen Zeit begannen viele jamaikanische Künstler, sich auf ihre Wurzeln zu besinnen. Viele Künstler engagierten sich bald im Rastafarianismus. Die "bewussten" Texte des amerikanischen Funk und Soul fanden wiederum Anklang bei jamaikanischen Künstlern. "Message From A Blackman" (ursprünglich von den Temptations) und "Is It Because I'm Black" (Syl Johnson) sind Beispiele dafür. In den 1970er Jahren wurden dann Soul/Disco-Künstler wie Barry White ("Can't Get Enough" und "Deeper and Deeper") und The Detroit Spinners ("I'll Be Around") zum Trend der Zeit.Den Abschluss dieser Auswahl bildet Willie Williams Interpretation des Klassikers "Ain't No Stopping Us Now" von Ashford and Simpson.

VA - Studio One Scorcher Vol. 2 (DOLP)
The legendary Skatalites, alongside the later Studio One in-house bands - the Soul Vendors, Sound Dimension, Soul Defenders and Brentford Road All Stars – were as much a part of the classic Studio One sound as were the singers that they accompanied such as Alton Ellis, Horace Andy, Marcia Griffiths and Bob Marley and The Wailers. This album features many of the musicians involved with Studio One who literally defined Reggae music. From the Skatalites members Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo to killer sidemen such as trombonist Vin Gordon (A/K/A Don Drummond Jnr), saxophonist Cedric "Im" Brooks, keyboardist and Twelve Tribes of Israel member Pablove Black. Many of the rhythms that these musicians created became the back-bone of the Jamaican musical world and their songs have been replayed and re-versioned by 1000s of Reggae producers ever-since. The album features classic and super-rare tracks all recorded under Clement ‘Sir Coxsone’ Dodd’s supervision at the legendary recording studio and record label. As well as sixteen killer tracks the album comes with new sleevenotes and photography by Dennis Morris and Adrian Boot making this another essential Studio One Reggae release for connoisseurs of Reggae and newcomers alike.
