Sound Dimension - Mojo Rocksteady Beat
Label Soul Jazz
As the in-house band at Studio One in the late 1960s, Sound Dimension played alongside everyone from The Heptones, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, Marcia Griffiths and more. Similar to their US counterparts The Funk Brothers at Motown and Booker T and The MGs at Stax, Sound Dimension recorded on a daily basis incredibly catchy and funky tunes matched by a seamless musicality. Featuring musicians of the calibre of Ernest Ranglin, Jackie Mittoo, Eric Frater, Leroy Sibbles, Don Drummond Jnr, Deadley Headley and more, the Sound Dimension existed from around 1967-70 and all the recordings featured here were originally released during this period. Their classic rhythms like "Real Rock", "Drum Song", "Heavy Rock", "Rockfort Rock" and "In Cold Blood" have become the backbone of many reggae cuts since, re-versioned in the roots and digital eras.
