Boothe, Ken – “A Man and His Hits ” – [Heartbeat]

Rococo   7/5/2005   CD, Reggae

Ken Boothe is not just one of the greatest reggae singers, but one of the greatest soul singers ever recorded. His career spans almost the entire history of reggae music, from the latter days of ska to a 1996 dancehall hit with deejay Shaggy. This collection is not a career retrospective, though, but rather a reissue of some of his best work for Studio One in the 1960’s. Primarily comprised of ska and rocksteady hits, this collection highlights, in no uncertain terms, the huge debt that Jamaican music owes to American R&B. ESSENTIAL!!!
