A reggae legacy made available.

Sampler

VP Records’ subsidiary 17 North Parade has just re-issued 'Live at the Turntable Club'. It’s the first ever live album recorded in Jamaica, and was originally issued on Trojan in 1975.

Live At The Turntable ClubDennis Brown, Delroy Wilson and Big Youth were all in their prime when this was recorded. The backing is provided by the always reliable Soul Syndicate. And the riddims are raw, sparse and with a no-nonsense approach. Just guitar, bass and drums engineered by King Tubby, Dennis Thompson and Errol Thompson.

Delroy Wilson and Big Youth rock their hit songs, while Dennis Brown performs the well-known Cassandra along with the lesser-known Rock With Me Baby and Give a Helping Hand.

The Turntable Club was the place to be in Kingston in the 70’s, and Winston “Merritone” Blake was the man in charge. The CD booklet includes a thorough interview with him, where he tells his story and gives a glance of a music industry full of hope and enthusiasm.

'Live at the Turntable Club' is a piece of music history made available for the first time in almost 40 years.
