• Rosco GORDON – Just A Little Bit Plus All The Singles As & Bs 1951-1961

Shambolic - not a word often used to describe musicians, their recordings or their careers but in the case of Rosco Gordon it seems to fit. Certainly his piano stylings are often referred to as shambolic, however his looping piano style and his ability to place the accent on the offbeat helped to form the foundation of bluebeat and ska in Jamaica.

Presented here are the A & B sides of every release he made up to 1961, major hits include 'Booted', 'No More Doggin'', 'Saddle The Cow' plus great tracks such as 'Just A Little Bit'.

This is the first time his exciting recordings have been presented in this way. An undeniably original talent whose contributions to the development of popular music cannot be underestimated and this collection fully demonstrates that.
