  • Various - It’s Jamaica Jump Blues Time! Jamaican Sound System Classics 1941-1962 (2LP) (LP)


    Jamaican Sound System Classics 1941-1962

    Well, no one can accuse us of rushing things: it’s been a year since Jump Blues Jamaica Way became the third volume in our Jamaican Sound System Classics series, but here at long last is the fourth instalment. It’s Jamaica Jump Blues Time! is available as both an 84-track 3CD selection and also a 28-track 2LP vinyl collector’s edition. These will be of equal interest to both Jamaican music fans and connoisseurs of classic US rhythm & blues. Since Fantastic Voyage released Jumping The Shuffle Blues back in 2011, each successive volume in the series has been eagerly awaited by lovers of the music, some of whom have even suggested tracks for the consideration of compiler and annotator Phil Etgart.

    Over the last twelve months Phil has been busy researching what records were favoured by the Jamaican sound systems. This is no easy matter, considering that many had their labels scratched out and were retitled by DJs keen to preserve their “exclusives”, meaning that they were known on the island by their sound system titles. This is the music that provided the inspiration for Ska and all that followed. So enjoy sound system favourites by Louis Jordan, Joe Liggins, Wynonie Harris, Fats Domino, Lowell Fulson, Roy Milton and a host of other names, both famous and obscure. Maybe we’ll do it all over again sometime, but you can’t hurry a good thing!
