1. Product Details

Long before the fusion of dancehall and reggae there was a time when vocal trios dominated Jamaicas music scene. From the early 60s three-part harmony ensembles peppered the charts with driving ska hits. By the time the lilting rhythms of rocksteady emerged in late 1966 an outfit made some of the most popular and enduring music ever issued on the island. They were of course The Uniques.The Uniques classic line-up of Slim Smith Lloyd Charmers and Jimmy Riley would record a series of superior sides with legendary producer Bunny Lee most notably The Impressions Gypsy Woman the soulful original Speak No Evil and the haunting My Conversation which may be one of the most versioned tracks of all time. Charmers produced the cover of Buffalo Springfields 1967 hit For What Its Worth aka Watch This Sound which was originally released on the groups own Tramp label.As 1968 drew to a close these recordings along with the remainder of their best-known songs to date were compiled for The Uniques debut album Absolutely The Uniques which unusual for the time was released as a full-price collection by Trojan in the UK.Antarctica Starts Here presents the long out-of-print domestic release of Absolutely The Uniques. Reproducing the original sleeve design this reissue is part of an archival series that focuses on Trojans essential 60s and 70s catalogue. Liner notes by Laurence Cane-Honeysett.
