Music from the Caribbean during the ’60s and ’70s.
With quarantines and lockdowns due to the Coronavirus pandemic ongoing around the world, artists are finding new ways to connect with people worldwide.
As part of our new feature on site – VF Live – our favourite collectors take you inside their homes and record shops, for intimate selects and mixes.
Londoner Eliza Rose has spent over a decade working at her local record shop Flashback, acquiring a formidable collection along the way – sourced from these racks and beyond.
For her first VF Live set, Rose dips into her collection, with selects from the Caribbean during the sixties and seventies including reggae, calypso, soul.
