RSD 2022 Soul Jazz Records Presents/Various - 100% Dynamite! – Yellow Colored
new one-off limited-edition special edition yellow coloured
vinyl pressing of Soul Jazz Records’ seminal reggae meets funk and soul
100% Dynamite explores the links between Reggae, Jazz, Funk and Soul.
The album is jam-packed with Reggae tunes that have crossed-over and
become cult dancefloor hits in clubland such as >Greedy G<,
>Rocksteady< and >Granny Scratch Scratch<. Fourteen tracks
of music that show the influence that American Jazz, Funk and Soul music
has had on Jamaican Reggae. The proximity of the West Indies to the USA
meant that many Jamaican musicians would continue to be influenced by
American styles of music whilst at the same time continuing to define
new styles of their own such as Ska, Rocksteady and Dub.
Soul Jazz Records’ new 20th anniversary one-off limited-edition
heavyweight special-edition purple coloured double vinyl pressing +
download code and striking ‘Wailers’ alternative gatefold sleeve only
available for Record Store Day 2022.
Studio One Classics features a non-stop selection of stone-cold
classic Studio One killers! Spanning 40 years of the legendary label,
this album is a celebration of the music of Studio One Records and
features a who’s who of Jamaican Reggae: Bob Marley, The Heptones,
Horace Andy, Sugar Minott, Don Drummond, Prince Jazzbo & more.This collection contains numerous legendary tracks, including Bob
Marley and the Wailers’ “Simmer Down”," "Love Me Forever" by Carlton
& His Shoes, Slim Smith's "Rougher Yet," Horace Andy's "Fever,",
Alton Ellis’s “I’m Just A Guy’, The Skatalites’ blazing ‘Confucious’ and
loads more. Timeless stuff - every track here is indeed a classic,
no-one can argue about that! Studio One produced literally hundreds of hits and this selection
includes some of the label’s most enduring songs. Often described as
both the University of Reggae, and the Motown of Jamaica, never were
these phrases more apt than if we look at the number of artists who
launched their musical careers at Studio One. It is simply impossible to
imagine modern Jamaican music without Clement "Coxsone" Dodd, founder
of the iconic label, and virtually every singer and musician of note in
Reggae cut their teeth at Studio One.
Studio One's output spans over four decades, all represented here.
Coxsone Dodd pioneered nearly every new form of Jamaican music as it
developed over time and this album includes Ska, Dancehall, Roots,
Rocksteady, DJ, Lovers and more.
This is probably the best entry of the many Soul Jazz Studio One
releases if you're after a primer in the Studio One sound. It's all here
from the stomping Ska of the Skatalites to The Lone Ranger's Rub-a-dub
Like it says on the wrapper 'Classics' pretty much sums it up.
