Compilation of classic recordings from the heaviest group in the history of reggae!
Sound Dimension has recorded some of the most important songs in reggae music; songs such as ‘Real Rock,’ ‘Drum Song,’ ‘Heavy Rock,’ ‘Rockfort Rock,’ ‘In Cold Blood’ — all classic songs that have become the ‘foundation’ of reggae music, endlessly versioned and re-versioned by Jamaican artists since the time they were first recorded to the present day.
As the in-house band at Studio One in the late 1960s, Sound Dimension played alongside everyone from The Heptones, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, Marcia Griffiths, and more.
Similar to their U.S. counterparts, The Funk Brothers at Motown and Booker T. and The MGs at Stax, Sound Dimension recorded on a daily basis incredibly catchy and funky tunes and matched by a seamless musicality.
Featuring musicians of the caliber of Ernest Ranglin, Jackie Mittoo, Eric Frater, Leroy Sibbles, Don Drummond Jr., Deadley Headley, and more; Sound Dimension existed from around 1967-70 and all the recordings featured here were originally released during this period.
