FULL UP : BEST OF STUDIO ONE VOL.21
Various Artists (1985)

Heartbeat HB 14

Love Me Forever (Carlton & the Shoes); Danger In Your Eyes (Paragons); Behold The Land (Culture); Big Mistake (Bassies); Armagideon Time (Willie Williams); Love Bump (Lone Ranger) // First Cut Is The Deepest (Norma Frazier); Look Who Is Back Again (Delroy Wilson & Slim Smith); Open The Gate (Ethiopian); Desperate Lover (Bob Andy); I Don't Want To See You Cry (John Holt); Full Up (Sound Dimension)

Also released on Heartbeat CD (HB-14) in 1987.

This is the second in Heartbeat's groundbreaking series of Studio One archive releases, with possibly an even stronger selection of titles than Volume 1. With tracks dating from 1967 (Look Who Is Back Again, First Cut Is The Deepest, Big Mistake), through 1970 (Desperate Lover) and 1979 (Open The Gate), right up until 1982 (Armagideon Time), the set chronicles the Studio One sound changing from Ska to Rock Steady to Reggae. This suberb compilation should be in everyone's collection.
