Compilation featuring a stellar selection of 1970s roots music - classic and rare tracks recorded at Clement Dodd's musical empire at 13 Brentford Road in the 1970s. Rastafarian-inspired Roots music was an ever-important aspect of Studio One's output from the start of the 1970s onwards and this album features many of the ground-breaking groups and artists that established the sound of Jamaica during this decade and beyond. Featured here are seminal artists such as Freddie McGregor, The Wailing Souls, The Gladiators, Horace Andy, Devon Russell, Cedric Brooks, Count Ossie and Judah Eskender Tafari alongside a host of lesser-known rare cuts made at Studio One from artists such as The Prospectors, Viceroys and Pablove Black.
