Featuring Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, Jackie Mittoo.
Soul Jazz is releasing a new compilation called Studio One Freedom Sounds, this September.
The double album showcases the rapidly developing ska, rock steady and reggae sound cultivated and released by Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One during its heyday, from 1965-1969.
“Studio One functioned as hit factory on the scale of Motown in the USA, shaping and defining reggae music for decades to come,” shares Soul Jazz.
The 18-track album includes music by Jackie Mittoo’s Soul Brothers, Alton Ellis, and Bob Marley & The Wailers.
Studio One Freedom Sounds 2xLP comes with sleeve notes and track-by-track info by reggae historian Noel Hawks.
