‘1961’ of the Double CD series charting the rise of Jamaican music from the late 1950s issued by Secret Records subsidiary label Sunrise Records

 

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…

Presenting Various Artists – Oh! Carolina Jamaican Chart Hits Of 1961’ – the ultimate collection featuring the most popular Jamaican hits that eventually invaded British shores and influenced a generation. Based on the hits chart of the legendary Jamaican radio station RJR, many of the songs were part of a burgeoning demand for the home-grown talent that was developing.

Upon RJR’s inception in 1959, its chart did not feature a single homemade Jamaican record but as it gained in popularity and influence all over the island, the music scene grew with it. Incorporating elements of dreamy Doo-wop ballads and American blues music, the emerging ‘sound’ formed the basis of Reggae and Ska. Within 2 years the scene had become an exciting and competitive market with many individuals and companies such as Duke Reid with Trojan and Chris Blackwell of Island beginning to see its potential for overseas distribution.  

Various Artists – Oh! Carolina Jamaican Chart Hits Of 1961’ features many of the artists that started as innovators and went on to become legends of Reggae/Ska including Laurel Aitken, Derrick Morgan, The Folkes Brothers, Erick Morris and many more. With each disc representing the most popular 28 tracks from the respective halves of 1961 as well as extensive sleeve notes from Record Collector’s Mike Atherton, the result is a truly fascinating, informative and most importantly, hugely enjoyable listening experience.

 
Release date: 24th June 2013
