SUGAR MINOTT AT STUDIO ONE (2LP, 2018 RE-ISSUE)
2x12" Vinyl US
Soul Jazz Records brings back the in-demand retospective of Sugar Minott’s work, originally released in 2005.
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 at the label such as Freddie McGregor, Johnny Osbourne and Michigan & Smiley leading to one of the most creative periods for the label.
This is the first retrospective of Sugar Minott at the label and most of these recordings have never been widely available outside Jamaica. Sugar Minott went on to a huge career in Reggae and is today one of the biggest stars in Jamaican music. This album includes classic cuts as well as super-rare singles only recordings, all of which have been digitally re-mastered for this release. The release also comes with extended interview with Sugar Minott and exclusive photos. [info from label]
