VARIOUS ARTISTS - Summer Records Anthology 1974-1988

va-summerrecordsanthology.jpgAnother release in the superb Jamaica to Toronto series, this compilation collects the best of tunes released by Summer Records, a label run by Jamaican ex-pat Jerry Brown. Based from a studio in Brown's Malton, Ontario basement, Summer was a focal point for Toronto reggae and dub at the time. Aside from a few expected production gaffes on the late 80s tracks, this is high quality stuff. Even better given the known names involved (Noel Ellis, Johnny Osbourne), these are some rare finds as well. Exceptional liner notes round out a fine tribute to Toronto's hidden musical legacy.
