Rare & Classic Releases by Women in Reggae on Double LP!
Rare and classic releases made at Studio One by reggae's leading women! Featuring legendary artists such as Marcia Griffiths, Rita Marley and Hortense Ellis (with a guest appearance by her brother Alton), alongside a host of rarities from lesser-known names such as Nina Soul, Nana Mclean, Denise Darlington, Myrna Hague and also Doreen Schaeffer - vocalist and founding member of The Skatalites!
Featured here are some notable cover versions - from Tyrone Davis' soul classic "Can I Change My Mind" to the Byrds' '60s psychedelic anthemic "Turn, Turn, Turn!" in a rub-a-dub style! Doreen Schaeffer handles Alton Ellis's seminal "I'm Still in Love," and Nina Soul covers the slack rocksteady anthem "Barb Wire."
Many of these tracks are almost impossible to find and many have never been issued ever since their initial release. The music on the album is - of course - 100% killer and features backing from all of the seminal groups at 13 Brentford Road including The Skatalites, Sound Dimension, Soul Brothers and the Brentford All Stars, and ranges from ska, rocksteady, roots, lovers and more from the '60s, '70s and '80s.
All produced by Clement 'Sir Coxsone' Dodd at Studio One Records, the number one sound in reggae music.
The album is released on Soul Jazz Records as a double vinyl LP with gatefold sleeve and limited-time download code.
