Product Details

Part One of Two. Double Vinyl LP edition. Melody and Style tells the story of Lovers Rock, which exploded in the UK in 1975, when an ex-Caribbean population of producers, artists and audience who had grown up in London, created for the first time a new uniquely British Reggae sound. Lovers Rock mixed American Soul music with Jamaican Reggae. At the heart of Lovers Rock remained the sound system culture that Jamaican producers brought from the Caribbean and transposed to inner city London life. Harmony, Melody and Style tells the story of Lovers Rock - from it's sound system beginnings, it's commercial explosion at the start of the 1980 s and it's underground continuance into the next decade as the founding producers continued to effortlessly absorb and mutate American soul, disco and rare groove styles into a distinctly British reggae sensibility. The album includes classic and rare tracks and comes with extensive text, as well as interviews with artists, musicians and producers who helped define lovers rock as well as exclusive photography.
