Rudy Got Soul: The Complete Early Years 1963-1968 chronicles Desmond Dekker's first single from 1963, "Honour Your Father and Mother," through his enormously successful Jamaican hits recorded in the mid- to late '60s with the Aces. The disc highlights the outset of rocksteady with the tracks "Hey Grandma," "Music Like Dirt," "Rudie Got Soul," "Sabotage," "Rude Boy Train," and the James Bond-inspired "007." These are the tracks that initially made him a star in Jamaica, then the U.K., and finally emerging as an internationally celebrated artist who hit it big in the U.S. with the Israelites in 1969. Highly recommended.

Trojan: 50 Years of Digging Reggae

Once past the Bob Marley tree, many reggae fans discovered the depth and diversity of the Jamaican music forest through the compilations of Trojan Records, some of which became true Proust madeleines. For the occasion of the label's 50th birthday, Qobuz looks back over the fluctuating trajectory of the label, together with Laurence Cane-Honeysett, curator of Trojan Records and author of the book The Story of Trojan Records.

10 Unsung Heroes of Jamaican Reggae

Behind the huge international success of figures like Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Shaggy, Jamaica’s local scene has always been a vibrant one. The sound is constantly changing. One star succeeds another. Here, Qobuz explores 10 local Jamaican reggae heroes who have all too often slipped under the radar.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
