Soul Jazz Records
Various - Studio One Story (Soul Jazz Records)
This album, originally released with the film of the same name, is now available for the first time as a stand-alone release. Spanning tracks from 30 years of Studio One releases, Studio One Story is a roller coaster ride through many of the label's finest moments - and features many of the tracks that defined it's history as well as Reggae itself. Tracks such as Alton Ellis's 'I'm Still In Love With You', The Skatalites' ska anthem 'Guns of Navarone' through to the roots killer, The Abyssinians 'Declaration of Rights', to absolutely monster party tunes such as Michigan & Smiley's 'Nice Up The Dance'. It really doesn't get any better than this!
