When it comes to pointing you towards something good, even if I have posted it before, there's no shame in a periodic re-posting of something I consider essential, especially when it's not easy to find. Todays refresher is in the debut LP of Horace Andy on Studio One. Released in 1969, when Andy was eighteen and just a voice, before he came with associations, collaborators or otherwise. Just a kid with a voice. And it's on Studio One, perfectly situated. The label had it's own sound, by most accounts, the best in town. Regardless of what degree of significance you put on the early recordings of a reggae legend, or just a damn good record on a damn good label at the right time, any combination of Horace Andy and Studio One is something you need to hear.
