1977 16 Track Mono Compilation Of Songs Recorded At Sun Studios 1951-1957. Compiled By Martin Hawkins. “Rosco Gordon Was Best Known For Being One Of The Progenitors Of A Slightly Shambolic, Loping Style Of Piano Shuffle Called "Rosco's Rhythm." The Basic Elements Of This Sound Were Further Developed After Jamaican Musicians Got A Hold Of 45s Gordon Recorded In The Early '50s -- Which Were Not Available To Jamaicans Until 1959 -- And Created Ska, Which Took Its Name For The Sound Of This Particular Shuffle As It Sounded Being Played On An Electric Guitar (Ska-Ska-Ska). No Less An Authority Than Chris Blackwell -- He Was The Founder/President Of Island Records Who Produced Bob Marley, The Wailers, And Peter Tosh, To Name A Few -- Has Cited Gordon's Importance To Reggae And Ska Music And Championed The Sound He Helped Create.” – Bryan Thomas, AMG
