Boomkat Product Review:
Studio One Scorcher is one of the most important collection in Soul Jazz Records' Studio One series, bringing together an unmissable collection of stand-out cuts from many of the finest players ever in Jamaica and in reggae music.
"Featuring The Skatalites, Jackie Mittoo, Tommy McCook, Cedric Brooks, Tommy McCook, The Sound Dimension, Don Drummond, Brentford Road All Stars and more - this triple album is the bomb. Heavy, heavy tunes from start to finish! All killer no filler!
These tunes encompass ska, rocksteady, roots, dub and more. Studio One instrumentals are the foundation of Reggae. They literally define reggae music! Many of these classic recordings became the basis for everything that followed in reggae music, replayed and versioned 1000s of times.
Here you will find Jackie Mittoo's seminal 'Sidewalk Doctor', Don Drummond Jnr's classic 'Heavenless', The Soul Vendors' Ringo Rock' and the Sound Dimension's 'Heavy Rock'. All original artists and original classic tunes, all on one album. Not to mention a host of utterly superb rarities from the mighty vaults of Studio One. 100% essential!"
