Out Of Many, 50 Years Of Reggae Music
The Caribbean island nation of Jamaica will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of its Independence on August 6th, 2012. To celebrate the event, reggae label has put together a wide-ranging 3 CD set titled Out Of Many, 50 Years Of Reggae Music. The box set chronicles reggae’s evolution with an iconic hit from each year since 1962.

This 3-disc anthology captures the quintessence of every period over the past five decades with 51 unique hits from artists including Lord Creator, Alton Ellis, Skatalites, Augustus Pablo, Dennis Brown, Culture, Eek-A-Mouse, Yellowman, Barrington Levy, Gregory Isaacs, Shabba Ranks, Chaka Demus & Pliers, Ninjaman, Beres Hammond, Lady Saw, Beenie Man, Sizzla, Sean Paul, Elephant Man, Tanya Stephens, Mavado, Gyptian and many more.

The chronological compendium includes detailed liner notes written by reggae historian Noel Hawks. He examines the innovation and evolution of the island’s music, and how the iconic label VP Records – once Randy’s Record Mart at 17 North Parade in Kingston, Jamaica – played a crucial role in the production and worldwide distribution of these sounds.
