Description

Clarks in Jamaica on LP

Vinyl LP pressing. Clarks in Jamaica is a photo essay book by DJ and designer Al Newman aka Al Fingers which tells the story of the phenomenal popularity of Clarks shoes in Jamaica - from their initial journey from the quiet village of Somerset to the West Indies one hundred years ago, through to their adoption as the rudeboy and Rasta shoe of choice during the 1960s, and the filtering of this popularity into reggae and dancehall song lyrics. Album tie-in with Al Fingers critically acclaimed 'Clarks In Jamaica' book. Classics from the golden age of Jamaican music celebrating reggae's love affair with the iconic UK footwear. Featuring anthem like tracks from Little John, Dillinger, Trinity, Ranking Joe, Supercat etc. Featuring current and historic photographs, interviews and never-before-seen archival material, particular focus is on the Jamaican singers, producers and musicians who have worn and sung about Clarks shoes throughout the years. In the words of Jamaican producer Bunny 'Striker' Lee: "From ever since, Clarks is a number one shoe inna Jamaica. Not just now, I'm talking from the Fifties come right up... Clarks stand the test of time inna Jamaica. All the other shoes come and bow right down at Clarks' foot."
