“I think if a nuclear family could have a soundtrack, ours would be the Soul Jazz comp ‘Studio One Scorcher’. I wouldn’t say it’s the best record ever made, but if I heard it every single day for the rest of my life, I’d be 100% cool with it.” - DJ
New one-off press transparent orange coloured triple vinyl edition (with download code) of Soul Jazz Records’ long unavailable ‘Studio One Scorcher’, featuring a blistering collection of rare and classic cuts recorded at Studio One.
‘Studio One Scorcher’ is one of the most important collections in Soul Jazz Records’ ‘Studio One’ series, bringing together an unmissable collection of stand-out cuts from many of the finest players ever in Jamaica and in reggae music.

All original artists and original classic tunes, all on one album. Not to mention a host of utterly superb rarities from the mighty vaults of Studio One.
