Second volume in a projected three volume set of books detailing the history and development of Jamaican popular music written by Noel Hawks - formerly of this parish - and the mysterious Jah Floyd of Jamaican Recorings under whose banner these books have emerged. This volume picks up where the last one - The Birth Of Ska: From Mento To Rock Steady - left off, at Duke Ried's Treasure Isle through chapters on Dynamics, Randy's, Harry J, Joe Gibbs, King Tubby and Channel One through the author's own deep knowledge of the Jamaican music industry embellished liberally with quotes from the many interviews Hawks undertook with the artists, musicians and producers he met through his years in the business. The first volume has sold extremely well and we are sure this one will do just as well if not better.
"The book contains a stunning collection of hard facts about the business of making records, as well as personal recollections from many of the leading lights of Jamaica's music scene, and is a fascinating read for record collectors, reggae fans and anyone who loves music. - Chris Lane Fashion Records.
