"The first release from One Stop Records delves deep into the classic sounds of Trojan Records. Simply Rockers: Jamaican Music from the Vaults features a truly classic line up which includes the sublime Marcia Griffiths (a brilliant take on Freda Payne's 'Band of Gold'), U Roy ('The Hudson Affair'), The Uniques ('People Rocksteady'), Ken Boothe (with the seminal 'Is It because I'm Black'), The Ethiopians (the fantastic 'Train to Skaville'), and The Pioneers reworking of The Temptations 'Papa Was A Rolling Stone'. There are 15 tracks in total featured here pop pickers but fear not, there's more to come, with Volume 2 already in the can and set for a pre-xmas 2001 release. For any reggae novices, this album comes with comprehensive sleeve notes from Johnny Chandler, who explains the importance and influence of the Trojan Label upon reggae and way beyond... This is classic stuff -- it really doesn't get much better than this." Reduced price, last copies.
