Love Jamaican music? Check out this bashy Jamaican music box set!
Sound System: The Story of Jamaican Music is releasing on Monday. The perfect soundtrack for the Black Caps current tour of Jamaica. This limited edition box set contains:
- 8 CDs
- Sound System hard backed book by Chris Salewicz and Adrian Boot
- Exclusive four colour, hand-pulled silk screen-print, on archival 250gsm paper
“Sound System features 120 songs randomly programmed to ape the way a Sound System DJ might select his set on any given night. It features a wonderfully eclectic mix of R&B, mento, ska, blue beat, reggae, dub and funk and celebrates the incredible musical gift this small island has given to the world. Sound System is a snapshot of Jamaican culture, the soundtrack you would hear on jukeboxes, ghetto blasters and on every radio station if you drove across Jamaica. From Althea & Donna’s global hit ‘Uptown Top Ranking’ to Eric Donaldson’s ‘Cherry O Baby’ via Augustus Pablo’s peerless ‘King Tubby Meets The Rockers Uptown’ and The Royals' ‘Free Speech And Movement’ there’s something for everyone here.”
