Soul Jazz Records Presents - Studio One Soul 2 

  • BACK IN PRINT!!!!!!! 2xLP now with bonus download code!

Studio One Soul 2 is the long awaited second volume of one of the largest selling Soul Jazz/Studio One titles, Studio One Soul.

Studio One Soul 2 takes us further into Jamaican music’s fascination with American Soul and Funk music. Featuring a host of classic Reggae artists – Horace Andy, The Heptones, Ken Boothe, Jackie Mittoo, Jacob Miller and many more covering equally classic American Soul and Funk tunes by the likes of Curtis Mayfield, The Five Stairsteps, Marvin Gaye, The Stylistics, Lee Dorsey, Al Green and Syl Johnson.

Studio One Soul 2 will appeal as much as an introduction to classic reggae as to connoisseurs and is another essential Studio One release. This selection features a mixture of classics, super-rare and unreleased tracks from Studio One, few of which have ever been on CD - all lovingly digitally re-mastered for this release. The vinyl edition also comes on super-loud double vinyl.

REVIEWS

"90% of the reggae music I own is contained on a handful of compilation albums from the phenomenal Soul Jazz Records stable. After eulogizing Morgan Khan’s Street Sounds series in my last post, I would have to add that Soul Jazz have done what Khan did for electro for reggae, by doing the hard work for the listener and releasing one quality compilation after another, all packed with the finest reggae songs around." WHITE NOISE

"Studio One was modeled on the record labels that had their own crack studio house bands, labels and studios like Stax in Memphis, Motown in Detroit, Muscle Shoals in Alabama and Criteria in Florida, so it was natural that at Studio One versions of some of the most influential soul records would be reworked in a Jamaican idiom for playing on the powerful sound systems" SOUNDS STAGE
