Originally released in 2000, 60's and 70's recordings.  

From forming The Skatalites at age 15, alongside Don Drummond, Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook and others, to his work as writer, arranger, producer at Studio One during the sixties, to his career as a solo artist as well as leader of bands such as The Soul Brothers, Soul Vendors and The Sound Dimension, Jackie Mittoo is at the heart of reggae music. 

Most of these tracks are taken from his recordings in the mid-sixties where he was recording on an almost daily basis at Studio One's Brentford Road studios, developing the funky reggae sound that was his trademark. Jackie Mittoo is without doubt the funkiest keyboard player ever to come out of Jamaica.
