Darker Than Blue: Soul From Jamdown 1973-77
by Various Artists
Released: Aug 2001
Label: Blood And Fire
Some well-known and not-so-well-known American funk tracks get reworked by the artists' Jamaican brethren. Culled from the early 1970s, the songs on this incredible compilation vibrate with serious soul power. Try Carl Bradley's "Slipping Into Darkness" or Ken Boothe's "Ain't No Sunshine." This set delivers.
