The Wailers & Associates - R&B, Gospel & Soul Collection - Studio One


The Wailers & Associates - R&B, Gospel & Soul Collection
Selection of Wailers and other related sides recorded mainly from 1964 to 1966. Features both covers of popular US hits and original compositions, all but a very few produced by Coxsone Dodd.

Tracks from the original Wailing Wailers - Bob Marley, Bunny Livingstone, Peter Tosh & Junior Braithwaite (until he left the group in 1964) - and collaborations between Bunny & Peter from when Bob also gone a foriegn and various solo efforts. Rita Anderson & The Soulettes and Marcia Griffiths tracks from Studio One with and without various members of the Wailers, including some duets with crooner Tony Gregory. Also included here are tunes by the late, great Jackie Opel with the Wailers doing backing vocals. One contemporary Judy Mowatt & The Gaylettes soul tune is featured to round things off though this is on Merritone and not a Coxsone Dodd production.

Wailers' gospel recordings on Tabernacle Records marked yet another side of their work with CS Dodd. Rare sides like Satan & the mento style Why Stay So Far From God as The Trying Brothers, a collaboration with Nora Dean & The Soul Sisters as the Soul Harmonisers and a Bob & The Spiritual Sisters song Let The Lord Be Seen In Me are all sublime.

Rita Marley really stands out here for the quality of her performances and her choice of material - an obvious great talent in her own right. 

No ska, no reggae here. Strictly R&B, Soul, Gospel and Doo Wop selections.

CD 1

CD 2

Continuous mix. Total 102 minutes - 164MB.

Thanks again to Mikey in Budapest for many of these great Coxsone rips.
