Soul Jazz Records Presents: Studio One Women
Soul Jazz Records
Ska, rock steady, funky reggae, roots, dub mixes, disco mixes... they're all here from the queens of the Jamaican music scene. "Studio One Women" features a wide mix of classics and obscurities from the finest female voices in reggae. Most of these tracks have been only on extremely hard to find Jamaican 7 and 12 inch singles if you were lucky enough to find them. Artists include Marcia Griffiths and Rita Marley (here with her first group the Soulettes) of the I-Threes, (along with Judy Mowatt), Bob Marley's backing singers. Also featured are Hortense Ellis, sister of Alton who cut many smash hit on the island and Jennifer Lara, a lady who had a long career with Studio One, singing on countless sides until she sadly passed away in 2005.
