The story of how Jamaica’s modern recording business developed from being a virtual one-man operation into a global industry has often been told, but never without with a degree of subjectivity. Until now…

‘Looking Back’ is the first in a series highlighting the recordings really purchased and enjoyed by the island’s record buying public, and that consequently influenced future generations of Jamaican music makers - as illustrated by the number later reworked by many of its biggest stars.

Featured on this 2CD, 59 track set are a variety of musical sounds, including hard-hitting R&B, Doo Wop, raucous Rock & Roll, sophisticated Pop from the US, to the Caribbean sounds of Calypso, Folk and Jamaican Boogie.

The result is a truly fascinating, informative, and most importantly, hugely enjoyable listening experience.
