Information

 

A definitive 2-CD/Two Vol 2xLP compilation album of Lovers Rock.

 

Double-CD (and two separate volumes of 2xLP) pack includes stunning 34-page booklet telling the story of Lovers Rock including interviews and features and exclusive photography.

 

Featuring Dennis Bovell, Carroll Thompson, Louisa Mark and many more.

 

Harmony, Melody and Style tells the story of lovers rock – from its sound system beginnings, through its commercial explosion at the start of the 1980s and its underground continuance into the next decade as the founding UK producers of Lovers Rock absorbed and mutated Jamaican reggae and American soul styles into a distinctly British reggae sensibility.

 

 

 

 

REVIEWS/FEATURES

 

“Hard to fault the collection. Soul Jazz has released a number of excellent collections-- helping to illustrate narratives in particular types of music by providing valuably comprehensive and illuminating context. Harmony is no exception.

 

There's over 40 pages of liner notes penned by label boss Stuart Baker, complete with interviews and photos that reach back to the 50s, setting the stage and moving through to the mid 80s. Each page illustrates elements of the rise of lovers rock in sound system culture while at the same time discussing the realities of racism in Britain." PITCHFORK

 

“Lovers Rock remains one of our few homegrown authentic musical hybrids, combining elements of American soul, Jamaican reggae and UK female attitude. As ever with Soul Jazz, it is packaged epically.” THE INDEPENDENT
