Studio One Pirates Choice - Various Artists

PIRATES CHOICE was (reluctantly) issued by Mr Dodd in response to the bootleg of the same tracks issued by Connect Records of Toronto, Canada, as BEST OF STUDIO ONE VOL.4. It is doubtful that Dodd would have released a compilation of such strong material without being forced to do so, none of these titles being included on any other album previously. The Studio One version has a slightly different mix, without overdubs and in mono. And an excellent O'Neil Nanco sleeve to boot.

A1. J Tee's - A Prayer To Jah
A2. Judah Eskander Tasfari - Jah Light
A3. Burning Spear - This Population
A4. Al Campbell - Take A Ride
A5. Sugar Minott - Love Gonna Pick up
A6. Prince Lincoln - True Experience
B1. Johnny Osbourne - Love Is Here To Stay
B2. Horace Andy - Show And Tell
B3. Doreen Shaffer - This Love
B4. Alton Ellis - A Fool
B5. Carlton And The Shoes - Love Me Forever

  1. For the only other comparable Studio One collection, check out "Tribute To Peckings."
    The 1995 release is the heartical tribute to Mr. Dodd's long-time friend, Leroy Price, who was the pipeline for Studio One music into the UK and beyond. Lance
