Product Description:

UK three CD collection of R&B which sowed the seeds for Ska on Jamaica's sound systems in the 1940s and 50s, lashing together 85 sizzling biscuits from that formative, feet-finding era. It's well established that the US R&B which started bombarding the island through radio after World War II was picked up by sound systems such as Clement 'Coxsone' Dodd and Prince Buster, germinating into ska after mating with the Caribbean's own calypso and other local musical strains. The records being produced in America's Southern states and cities like New Orleans were loosely termed 'shuffle blues'; contagious, jumping and bulging with animated incitements to party, dance or get down and dirty, many boasting some of the most caterwaulingly volcanic saxophone solos known to man. The tracks presented on Jamaica Selects Jump Blues Strictly for You straddle the shuffle blues panorama over three CDs. Future Noise.
