This is the third playlist in a series documenting every release on the Blue Beat label. This is from 1961. Having completed my collection of Blue Beat singles I am happy to play out a selection of tunes from the great era of Jamaican Blues, Shuffle and Beat, leading to Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae. Some of the tracks on the collection were produced in Britain for the same market but I will also include some contemporary Popcorn tunes that would have been selected by DeeJays in the legendary yard parties, lawn dances and soundclashes.
