Part of a series of newly created Trojan Records compilations celebrating the re-launch of Trojan Records. Shortly before the advent of Ska, Jamaica rocked to a sound variously known as Jamaican Blues, Shuffle Blues, or Blues Beat. Influenced by U.S. musicians such as Rosco Gordon and Fats Domino, the style emphasized the off-beat and laid the foundation for the Ska sound of the early sixties. Features 12 classic tracks from Desmond Dekker, Roland Alphonso, Derrick Morgan, Roy & Millie, and more.
