2014 limited edition vinyl pressing collection of the music that provided the inspiration for ska & all that followed; sure to appeal to both Jamaican music fans & followers of hard-hitting Fifties R&B alike. Before the development of it's own recording industry, Jamaican music fans predominantly found musical fulfillment in the raw USA shuffle blues. This no-nonsense style of R&B dominated the island's sound system dances in the early fifties. Compiled & annotated by leading reggae collector & authority Phil Etgart, it includes some of the most popular of these influential sound system favorites, many of which were later covered by some of Jamaica's biggest names including Laurel Aitken, Derrick Morgan, the Skatalites, Ken Boothe, John Holt, U Roy & more. 500 copies worldwide. Future Noise.
