SHIM SHAM SHIMMY SOUND
Bringing to you the best hot rockin’ '50's rhythm & blues through to the top-tunes of stompin’ '60's ska - we cram in the classics from vintage rare gems to pure gold hits...
Our story begins with the legendary Jamaican sound system pioneers, such as Duke Reid & Coxsone Dodd; who would play out the popular American rhythm & blues records of the day - influenced by broadcasts from the radio stations of the US southern states.
These influential sound systems were destined to press their own records and contribute to the emergence of a new home-grown Jamaican musical style that would chime in with the optimistic times of independence - eventually to be known the world over as 'the Ska'!
Influenced by these two periods of burgeoning sound system history, Lord Masher's bring to you a selection of classic & rare rockin' rhythm & blues cuts and scorcher ska sides inspired by the 1950's & early '60's party sounds, that back in their day – would rule 'the dance'...!
