The great sounds of Studio One.

The fruitful collaboration between UK’s Soul Jazz Records and the legendary Studio One label has resulted in yet another fine compilation, this one with a rather generic title though.

Studio One Sound is a fresh collection of 18 tunes recorded between 1964 and 1979 compiled by reggae specialist Oxman with sleeve notes by Rob Chapman, author of titles such as 'Never Grow Old: Studio One Singles Listing & Rhythm Directory'.

Studio One SoundThis genre spanning album gathers several hard to find gems in the rocksteady, ska, dub and roots mood with singers and groups such as Rita Marley, Slim Smith and the Wailing Souls handling microphone duties.

With Studio One Sound you’ll get your hands on Anthony “Rocky” EllisDouble Minded Man, one of four songs he recorded for Studio One, The Martinis’ cover of Smokey Robinson & The MiraclesI Second That Emotion and Ras Michael & The Sons of Negus’ funky Good People without paying a visit to your bank.

The warm and distinctive sound of the Brentford Road studio is carefully mastered and the sound quality is excellent throughout. Studio One Sound is a must have and gives a good overview of the label’s extraordinary output.
