ABOUT THIS ITEM
Superb new collection featuring the cream of reggae artists from the legendary Studio One Records. Studio One's music in the 1970s took the label to new heights, with the new style of 'Disco Mix' bringing many areas of Reggae together. Roots, lovers, disco and dub all converged in extended forms, re-versioning classic hits, experimenting with new studio technology, over-dubbing, syn drums and more, producing what many fans describe as the most creative and innovative phase in the history of the legendary Studio One Records. This "Studio One Disco Mix" album includes many sought after classic tunes only ever released in very small quantities (on Studio One's very first 12" records as well as its infamous Music Lab 10"s out of New York) and consequently many of these tracks have been unavailable since their day of release. The compilation features many of the classic Studio One artists such as Alton Ellis, Sugar Minott, Jackie Mittoo, Norma White's ace cover of Chic's "I Want Your Love" and Willie Williams (with the classic re-versioning of his own "Armigideon Time"), alongside less well known artists such as Doreen Schaeffer, Judah Eskender Tafari and George Dudley, and many more.
