Various 'Hot Sauce Vol. 1' LP
HIGHLIGHTS: This is the first volume of the HOT SAUCE compilation LPs dedicated to the Trojan related UK labels between 1965 and 1975. The initial plan is for a series of at least 3 albums of 14 titles. HOT SAUCE VOLUME 1 features Rocksteady, Boss Reggae, early Dub & early Reggae, outstanding original Jamaican tracks including rare songs, overlooked gems, hidden treasures and some hits.
The record labels showcased on the first volume are Attack, Amalgamated, Black Swan, Blue Cat, Downtown, Doctor Bird, Duke, Grape, High Note, Randy’s and Trojan. The tracks here have been selected according to their musical interest firstly, their rarity, and their complementary feel as pert of this compilation. These tracks are all outstanding tracks, “killer tracks”, there are no “fillers” whatsoever. Particular attention has been paid to the way the songs are sequenced (or “mixed”) so that the album builds up nicely and gradually, generally starting with the Rocksteady songs on the A side and the 70s songs on the B side.
HOT SAUCE is a musical journey across the early Reggae UK labels and across different Jamaican musical genres & talents and the way they interact together. Since the early 70s “Tighten Up” series, no compilation have really explored these labels in depth on vinyl…
