  • $23.99

Long out of print re-release of this classic Sugar Minott album on Soul Jazz Records, bringing together the best of his classic material recorded at Studio One in the 1970s.

This album includes classic cuts as well as super-rare singles only recordings, all of which have been digitally remastered for this release. Sugar Minott began his career at Studio One in the early 1970s. After auditioning in front of Coxsone Dodd, where he performed over original Studio One tapes, Sugar Minott became one of the first artists at the label to record new songs over classic rhythms. Other artists followed suit, such as Freddie McGregor, Johnny Osbourne and Michigan and Smiley, leading to one of the most creative periods for the label. This is the first retrospective of Sugar Minott at Studio One and most of these recordings have never been widely available outside Jamaica.
