Various Artists Studio One Roots 2
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Soul Jazz
Nothing stops unearthed material from Studio One-the "University of Reggae" (as Chris Blackwell dubbed it)-from appearing. This second edition features seven unreleased tracks from Sir Coxsone Dodd‘s vaults. Winston Matthews sounds eerily like Robert Nesta on "Sun is Shining," his melodica tinny and beatifically Rasta. Classics from Cedric "Im" Brooks, Joe Higgs, Ken Boothe, and Count Ossie make this yet another credible addition to the vast catalog of Jamaican folk. The analog sound of classic reggae is unmatched by our digital excursions-these 19 selections are as raw as it comes.
