This is the first book devoted to the studio musicians who were central to Jamaica s popular-music explosion. With color portraits and interview excerpts, over 100 musical pioneers such as Prince Buster, Robbie Shakespeare, Sly Dunbar, Lee Scratch Perry, and many of Bob Marley s early musical collaborators provide new insights into the birth of Jamaican popular music in the recording studios of Kingston, Jamaica, in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. Includes a listening guide of selected songs."
