14 killer cut’s from Jamaica’s legendary label…

In the beginning of the 80’s reggae music became increasingly in tune with what was happening in Kingston’s dancehalls….probably more so than at any time since the sound system operators had started to make their own shuffle and boogie in the late 50’s. The international audience and the critics were too busy looking for a new Bob Marley to appreciate what was happening downtown and failed to acknowledge that this was a return to the real, raw roots of the music…brash, confidient, young record producers who were totally in tune with the youth audience stepped forward and seized the moment. Oswald ‘Ossie’ Thomas began his apprenticeship in the music business at the age of fourteen and served his time as a record salesman for Bunny ‘Striker ‘Lee and Winston ‘Niney the Observer’ Holness before moving on to Miss Sonia Pottingers Tip Top Records.

It was during his time with Miss Pottinger that Ossie began to produce records for himself and in 1979 Ossie and Phillip Morgan began The Black Solidarity label based deep in the Kingston ghetto on Delamere Avenue. And the man who had made his name in the business selling other people’s records now became one of the most important and influential record producers of the era. It features cuts from Cutty Ranks, Triston Palma, Ashanti Waugh, Michael Forbes and more.​
