ABOUT THIS ITEM
The second "Scorcher" features another stellar line-up of Jamaica's finest ever musicians, with the album focussing on many of the players involved with Studio One who literally defined the sound of reggae music. From the Skatalites members Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso and Jackie Mittoo to killer sidemen such as trombonist Vin Gordon (aka Don Drummond Jnr), saxophonist Cedric 'Im' Brooks, keyboardist and Twelve Tribes Of Israel member Pablove Black, these musicians created instant classics. Many of the rhythms they made became the backbone of the Jamaican musical world and their songs have been replayed and re-versioned by 1000s of reggae producers ever since - in fact you'll probably know many of the tracks here under different artist names. The album features classic and super-rare tracks all recorded under Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd's supervision at the legendary recording studio and record label. As well as seventeen killer tracks, the album comes with new sleevenotes and photography by Dennis Morris and Adrian Boot, making this another essential Studio One reggae release.
