DUBROOM MP3 REVIEW
WWW, October 2007 - Originally hailing from Trinidad, Jackie Opel is best known for being one of the top singers during of Jamaican Ska in the 1960's. A tribute.
Listening to the historic recordings of Jackie Opel's voice as he rides over the Ska riddims will once again remind the listener just how special Jamaican Music is. Singers and Players of Instruments, each one carrying more skills and talents than your average world star together.
The injustice that comes with the world economical situation becomes painfully clear, when we realize how this music is recorded on material that even for the time wasn't the best of best. That stuff was reserved for the rich countries, and only now with digital possibilities there is somewhat of a more equal situation as computers can more or less replace a complete studio.
Almost 30 minutes of sweet, soulful, energetic music, with Jackie Opel singing lover's tunes as well as spirituals. For (y)our listening pleasure and meditation!
