Various Artists Soul Jazz Records Presents Studio One Disco Mix

"Disco Mix" has a dual meaning on this vintage Studio One collection. First, it refers to the popular early ‘70s Jamaican 10" and 12" single format, where a song plus its dub or a DJ version would be included in one extended mix. Then there‘s the American soul genre, which inspires some of the music contained here. Seventies and ‘80s icons Alton Ellis and Sugar Minott feature here alongside lesser-known acts like Norma White, who shines on her remake of Chic‘s "I Want Your Love." But it‘s Willie Williams‘ top-ranking tune "Armigideon Time" that still lives on, albeit mostly as an x-rated dub plate for warring sound-systems ("A lot of sound-boy nah get no p--y tonight.") More bang for your buck, indeed!
