Roots Reggae from Studio One is also the focus of the second part of "Black Man"s Pride", and thus inevitably also Rastafarianism. Connoisseurs of Jamaican popular culture know: the rise of Clemens Dodd's empire is closely linked to the Rastafarian movement . From the Skatalites and the Wailers in the 1960s, through star singers like Alton Ellis and Horace Andy to The Gladiators in the 70s, key reggae figures felt connected to Rastafarianism and were signed to Sir Coxsonne. Typical of soul jazz, contains " Black Man"s Pride 2" alongside classics by well-known Studio One artists - Alton Ellis, The Heptones, Jackie Mittoo, The Gladiators - also some rarities such as the single "Let Freedom Reign" by the drummer group Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, Willie Williams very first recording ("Calling") and Horace Andy's hard-to-find masterpiece "Illiteracy" as well as pieces by lesser-known artists (High Charles, The Manchesters, Peter Broggs). In addition to the in-depth information about the Rastafari culture and its relationship to Clemens Dodd, the booklet for each song contains notes written by Soul Jazz author Rob Chapman.
