Carolina Jamaican Hits 1961'and 'Easy Snapping - Easy Snapping The Jamaican Chart Hits of 1960'now is 'Forward March: The Jamaican Chart Hits of 1962'.

Exactly what it says on the tin, this album features the best loved Jamaican chart hits from 1962. The early 1960s was an incredibly active time within Jamaica both politically and musically. Having achieved independence the year before, a new cultural identity developed on the island that was reflected in the joyous attitude of the music.

With the success of Chris Blackwell's newly established Island Records, many Jamaican labels and artists began to find success both overseas and of course domestically. Some of these labels included Blue Beat, All-Stars, Studio One, Beverley's and Creative and some of the artists, all featured on this album, include Laurel Aitken, Derrick Morgan, Prince Buster, Jimmy Cliff, Owen Gray as well as groups such as The Blues Busters, The Belltones, and The Jiving Juniors. Much of this music formed the foundations of various genres such as reggae, dub, dancehall and influenced countless musicians.

Listen to this and the other Secret Records compilations to explore the rich history of popular Jamaican music from the late 1950s to early 1960s.
