Rupie Edwards All Stars - Jamaica Serenade 7"SKU: HRV112
Rupie Edwards was one of Jamaica's most prominent producers, putting out many a hit on his label 'Success,' including the big hit 'Ire Feelings' which had significant chart success in the UK !
Horus Records is proud to present here two lesser known cuts produced by Rupie, first 'Rise And Fall' which was recorded and dubbed by Lee "Scratch" Perry at the infamous Black Ark studio in 1975. Mellow yet heavy, with a deep thunderous bass accompanying Rupie's equally deep and husky baritone.
The other single we present here for your pleasure is 'Jamaica Serenade,' an incredibly scarce 7" that is almost impossible to find. The Rupie Edwards All Stars are fronted by Marques on the Alto Sax, lo-fi reverb wonder! This track is also interesting as Rupie is playing the guitar, the bass and the drums - though hitting the kick with his hand holding a beater! We believe this is also from 1975 , though we can't be sure!
