• Various Artists - Stirring Up Some Ska – The Original Sound of UK Club Land

WELCOME TO THE CLUB! The first in a new series of 'Club Beat' albums that explores the roots of Black music in the U.K., via the burgeoning post-war club scene, as it evolved into 'Soul', influenced along the way by an exotic mix of rhythm & blues, jazz and reggae.

Chapter one embraces the birth of Ska in the cosmopolitan melting pot and fashion conscious Soho, enriched by the influx of half a million British West Indians and their vibrant culture. We focus on Carnaby Street's infamous Roaring Twenties Club and its genre defining playlist captured in our 25 track compilation

Features many new-to-CD tracks including the original take of 'Come To Me Softly' by Jimmy James

Illustrated and informative liner notes.
