Revisiting Sounds of Taxi

THE golden years of the Taxi label are revisited on “Sly and Robbie Presents Sounds of Taxi”, a compilation album recently released by Tads International Records. It contains 22 songs produced by drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Robbie Shakespeare for the Taxi imprint, starting in the late 1970s with songs from Gregory Isaacs, the Tamlins, the Wailing Souls, Jimmy Riley, Junior Delgado and Sugar Minott. There are also songs from the 1980s by artistes who emerged during that decade, such as roots singer Ini Kamoze and deejay Yellow Man. The set closes with covers of Bob Marley&;s Crazy Baldhead and Running Away, recorded by Luciano and Beenie Man in the 1990s. The Taxi label was actually launched in the early 1970s by Dunbar and guitarist/bassist Bertram &;Ranchie&; McLean, who were members of Skin, Flesh and Bones, house band at the Tit For Tat nightclub in St Andrew.
