The original 1974 release, presented and produced by Niney The Observer, was the first live album recorded in Jamaica that gave the rest of the world aural access to Kingston’s lively music scene during a definitive era in reggae.
With electrifying live performances from Dennis Brown, Delroy Wilson, Big Youth and backing band Soul Syndicate, Live At The Turntable Club is a vibrant snap shot of the key players who paved the way for the roots genre. Reggae’s most accomplished recording engineers – King Tubby, Errol Thompson and Dennis Thompson – along with Niney and these legendary artists were at the peak of their musical careers when they captured these live recordings inside Kingston’s famous nightclub. The songs were mixed by King Tubby at his renowned studio on Dromilly Avenue and mastered in London at The Beatles’ Apple Studio on Saville Row.
