Overview

Sister Carol brings together Jamaican luminaries for a tribute to Clement Dodd's Studio One label and the heyday of rocksteady and vintage reggae. Carol came to the project out of frustration at the almost total lack of reggae played on stateside radio (she and her family emigrated to Brooklyn in the early '80s) and as a fond remembrance of the soulful reggae stylings of her youth. Recorded in Kingston with some of the city's best players, the 18 selections include Studio One classics covered by Judah Tafari (Ken Boothe's "Just Another Girl"), Freddie McGregor (Delroy Wilson's "My Baby Is Gone"), and Dennis Brown (Johnny Osbourne's "All I Have Is Love"). Carol chips in nicely with two strong singjay cuts (a combination of singing and DJ toasting), while Angie Angel delivers her "Sativa Info" in similar fashion. Also on hand are Sugar Minott, Fred Locks, Johnny Osbourne, and Glen Washington. Overall, a successful look back at the music before the digital hegemony of dancehall and ragga.
