Before the advent of ska, Jamaica rocked to a sound variously known as Jamaican Blues, Shuffle, Jamaican R&B, or Blue Beat.

Influenced by the recordings of U.S. musicians such as Rosco Gordon and Fats Domino, the style emphasized the off-beat and laid foundations for the uniquely Jamaican ska sound of the early days of the nation's independence.

This collection brings together a dozen of the most influential tracks from this largely overlooked period, when the modern Jamaican recording industry was still in its infancy.
