Black American music has long since profoundly influenced the national sound of Jamaica and no more so was this apparent than during the early to mid-1970s when soul and funk ruled the airwaves.
Featured on a brand new album are 12 of the most sought-after reggae interpretations of R&B dance-fillers, performed by a dozen of the greatest Jamaican talents of the period.
Mastered from the best available analogue source, the record is pressed on 180gm vinyl and presented in a stylishly designed sleeve that is in keeping with the other titles in the recently launched genre-themed range.
