Skanish Sound: Jamaican Influenced Music From Spain, 1964-1972
Import CD (Vampi Soul 142CD), Released 2012;
Editor's Pick:
The first extensive compilation of Jamaican-influenced music in Spain from the 60s and early 70s. A unique and fascinating part of the Spanish music scene of that period. Includes covers of Jimmy Cliff, Desmond Dekker, Bruce Ruffin, The Pioneers, Millie Small… Most tracks reissued for the first time...
...What we have here is a captivating collection of tracks (mainly covers but also a few originals) which mix the enthusiasm and fascination of musicians who were captivated by the sounds coming originally from Jamaica. At times the results they achieved fit within the expected sounds of the genre, but sometimes their efforts produced a mixture, whether intentionally or due to better intentions than skill, which gave Jamaican music a uniquely Spanish character.
