Further Information

To mark the 50th anniversary of Jamaican independence Island Records have released a huge box set entitled ‘Sound System – The Story Of Jamaican Music’ on June 25th ’12. ‘Sound System’ will feature 8 CDs of glorious music and a deluxe hard backed book by acclaimed writer Chris Salewicz (author of biographies of Bob Marley, Joe Strummer and ‘Rude Boy – Once Upon A Time In Jamaica’) and featuring hundreds of photos by legendary photographer Adrian Boot. ‘Sound System’ features 120 songs over 8 CDs randomly programmed to ape the way a Sound System DJ might select his set on any given night. It features a wonderfully eclectic mix of R&B, mento, ska, blue beat, reggae, dub and funk and celebrates the incredible musical gift this small island has given to the world.
