This review is from: Down Beat Shuffle The Birth Of A Legend (Audio CD)
The importance of Studio One in the history of reggae cannot be over emphasised,this is a collection of very early recordings from the producer Coxone Dodd,prior to Ska, this is what was recorded in an effort to copy the records you could hear on the radio in Jamaica from the powerful stations from the U.S.A, and what was played on the sound systems of the day.
This triple C.D. contains music of all kinds,soul,boogie woogie,R and B,Rock and Roll etc,but in all that mishmash you can hear the Ska beat trying to come through.
A fascinating collection of recordings,which would cost an absolute fortune to buy on 45's and the quality suggests the audio was taken from original tapes and not copied off records.
A must for fans of Jamaican music,who would like to delve deeper into its roots.
