About this collection It is tough to explore one of the biggest world productions of vinyl records, a bit like Bollywood is for film industry. This collection of a hundred vinyl records approaches many different styles coming from Jamaïca: ska, rocksteady, roots, dub, dancehall, ragga and more. Original or repressing? Your eardrums will tell.

Anyways, this cave of wonders is loaded with treasures; here is a selection of them. Experts know that albums are not really the island's favourite format. However, they are an excellent gateway. Many other LPs could have been listed, like compilations (released into thousands). Maybe they will be the subject of another collection for "Jamaican Flavour"?

Good Vibes To All!
