Smoke Notes

First anthology of this legendary roots reggae label. Remastered from the original tapes. Limited edition digipack & deluxe booklet. Dual disc includes over twenty minute video documentary of late '70s unseen footage from Jackie Mittoo & Willi Williams in the studio to interviews with the musicians. For many locals and traveling Jamaican musicians, Jerry Brown's Malton, Ontario-based Summer Sounds Studios -- known as Canada's answer to Lee Perry's Black Ark -- was a creative haven that tapped deep into the depths of universal reggae consciousness. Located just outside of Toronto, the label fired their first shot in 1974 with Johnnie Osborne's 'Sun Rise' backed with the heavenly bounce of 'Love Makes the World Go Round' (coproduced by Brown's one-time collaborator and Half Moon Records founder, Oswald Creary).
Throughout most of the '70s, Canadian-produced reggae music was a commercial non-entity, bar a thriving underground scene of ex-pats who simply did what came naturally to them in small studios and private dances. The records mostly sat unnoticed amidst the steady flow of JA product in the gaggle of independent record shops in Toronto that catered to the West Indian population. This sleeping giant will rest no more. Over the years, a veritable who's-who of reggae music legends passed through Brown's nowdefunct basement studio, wired by none other than Prince (now King) Jammy: Jackie Mittoo, Willi Williams, Noel Ellis, Johnnie Osbourne, Stranger Cole, Leroy Sibbles, and Carl Dawkins to name a few. One by one they recorded the otherworldly tracks that form the cornerstone of Light In The Attic's Summer Records Anthology 1974-1988.
