Various Artists - Original Soul Reggae Classics
Label Trojan Records
Black American music has had a profound influence on the national sound of Jamaica and no more so was this apparent than during the early to mid-1970s when soul and funk ruled the airwaves. Featured on a brand new album are 12 of the most sought-after reggae interpretations of R&B dance-fillers, performed by a dozen of the greatest Jamaican talents of the period. Mastered from the best available analogue source, the record is pressed on 180gm vinyl and presented in a stylishly designed sleeve that is in keeping with the other titles in the recently launched genre-themed range.
