Stirring Up Some Ska - The Original Sound Of UK Club Land


Welcome to the club! The first in a new series of 'Club Beat' albums from Jasmine that explores the roots of Black music in the U.K., via the burgeoning post-war club scene, as it evolved into soul, influenced along the way by an exotic mix of rhythm & blues, jazz and reggae.

Chapter one embraces the birth of Ska in the cosmopolitan melting pot and fashion-conscious Soho, enriched by the influx of half a million British West Indians and their vibrant culture. Jasmine focuses on Carnaby Street's infamous Roaring Twenties Club and its genre defining playlist captured in this 25 track compilation.

Features many new-to-CD tracks including the original take of "Come To Me Softly" by Jimmy James.

Includes illustrated and informative liner notes.
