Editors’ Notes

In addition to being some of the most formidable instrumentalists on an island positively brimming with musical talent, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare were first-rate producers who never failed to add distinctive touches to their recordings. General Echo’s “Drunken Master” and Gregory Isaacs’ “Oh What a Feeling” are propelled by syncopated digital hiccups, an unearthly percussion element unique to the Riddim Twins’ productions from that time. For all of the bracing, dancehall-courting innovation on display here, there are a fair number of more old-fashioned numbers that hark back to the soul-inflected vocalizations and tight harmonies of the roots era. The Wailing Souls' keening “Old Broom,” for instance, sounds as though it might have been recorded in the late ‘60s, while Jimmy Riley’s interpretation of Curtis Mayfield’s “My Woman’s Love” has a sweet sensitivity that rivals the song's classic rocksteady version (which Slim Smith & The Uniques sent racing up the Jamaican charts in 1969).
