Slow Pete’s Badass 70ies Jamaican Record Label Guide

Slow Pete’s Badass 70ies Jamaican Record Label Guide takes you on a mystical jouney into the world of Jamaican Record labels. On 165 pages you will find information on the 165 record labels from Jamaica, which have predominantly been active in the 70ies, however there are also a few depicted and discussed from the 60ies. Besides the pictures of the labels you will find some hard facts on their years active, the producer of the label or how many records have aproximatly been released through the label. Some icons on each page guides you through the book, giving you addional informations on the labels. Ultimately some personal notes from Slow Pete on each of the labels have been added to the page. This book is supposed to be an inspiration for music lovers, vinyl diggers, DJs and soundboys who have an appreciation for Jamaican music of the golden era.

The book is published through the superfine Oi Jazz publishing house. Order at your local book dealer (ISBN: 978-3-9817019-7-5), at the printing house (Blurb, recommended for UK) or directly through me:
