This title deals with the growth of the Jamaican recording industry.
Records have played an integral part in the history of Jamaican music and the importance of making records, as opposed to making music, can never be overstated. These are the stories, told through first-hand accounts wherever possible, of the men and women manufacturers, musicians, singers, deejays, arrangers and record producers who made the records and who made the sound of reggae available worldwide.
Book Three “seamlessly weaves quotes and recollections from the key players into the narrative to give the reader a unique, and genuine, insight into the development of Jamaican music and the business of selling it”.
Illustrated throughout with period photos, artefacts & record labels this volume covers the work of Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry at the Black Ark, Herman Chin Loy at Aquarius, Bob Marley at Tuff Gong, King Jammy’s technological revolution, King Tubby in the digital era and includes Chris Lane’s definitive history of the development of dub.
This is volume THREE in the 'A History of the Jamaican Recording Industry' series.
