Amoeba Review

01/21/2013

Studio One produced so much essential music from Jamaica in the 1960s and ’70s that any new collection of music from the label/recording studio is a boon for fans of classic reggae. This two-disc collection from Soul Jazz has so much great music that’s it’s hard to even cover, from Marcia Griffith’s echoed declaration of love on “Mark My Word” through The Gladiators’ creeky, creepy “Bongo Red.” Several of these songs could easily work their way into your favorites collection — I’m partial to The Paragons’ “Danger in Your Eyes,” with its vibrant brass and sad harmonies. Suffice to say, the songs here are crucial for reggae and dancehall fans and, as with many Studio One compilations, serve as a great primer for those looking to explore classic Jamaican sounds of the era.
