Soul Jazz Records' new 20th anniversary one-off limited-edition heavyweight special-edition purple coloured double vinyl pressing + download code and striking 'Wailers' alternative gatefold sleeve only available for Record Store Day 2022.

Studio One Classics features a non-stop selection of stone-cold classic Studio One killers! Spanning 40 years of the legendary label, this album is a celebration of the music of Studio One Records and features a who's who of Jamaican Reggae: Bob Marley, The Heptones, Horace Andy, Sugar Minott, Don Drummond, Prince Jazzbo & more.

This collection contains numerous legendary tracks, including Bob Marley and the Wailers' 'Simmer Down'," "Love Me Forever" by Carlton & His Shoes, Slim Smith's "Rougher Yet," Horace Andy's "Fever,", Alton Ellis's 'I'm Just A Guy', The Skatalites' blazing 'Confucious' and loads more. Timeless stuff ' every track here is indeed a classic!

Studio One produced literally hundreds of hits and this selection includes some of the label's most enduring songs. Often described as both the University of Reggae and the Motown of Jamaica, Sir Coxsone nurtured countless artists who began their musical careers at Studio One. It is simply impossible to imagine modern Jamaican music without Clement "Coxsone" Dodd, founder of the iconic label, and virtually every singer and musician of note in Reggae cut their teeth at Studio One.

In over four decades Coxsone Dodd pioneered nearly every new form of Jamaican music as it developed over time and this album includes Ska, Dancehall, Roots, Rocksteady, DJ, Lovers and more.

This is probably the best entry of the many Soul Jazz Studio One releases if you're after a primer in the Studio One sound. It's all here from the stomping Ska of the Skatalites to The Lone Ranger's Rub-a-dub stylee!

Like it says on the wrapper 'Classics' pretty much sums it up.
