Jackie Mittoo & The Soul Vendors- Evening Time (320 rip)

Jackie Mittoo should need no introduction. He is the crown prince of Jamaican keys, was a founding member of the Skatalites and veteran writer/bandleader for Coxsone Dodd's legendary Studio One label. Evening Time (1968) offers up an unbeatable selection of breezy rocksteady organ grooves; a perfect cross-section of what classic Mittoo is all about. Top Notch. 320 vinyl rip by yours truly.*

From the album's back cover:

There are very few Musicians of any style or era, whose appeal is such that it is safe to recommend them to anyone for enjoyment in personal performance or on Record, Jackie Mittoo is such a Musician.

Jackie “Soul” Mittoo’s Musical Talents became apparent at a very early age. By the time he entered High School, Jackie was already a semiprofessional.

Jackie came to the attention of Recording Executive, Clement S. Dodd, in Kingston, Jamaica; and while still in School, he worked as a staff Musician for COXSONE RECORDS, appearing as ’side man’ on many Recording Dates for that Label.

It became obvious that one day Jackie would be ready to record under his own name. Several months ago, Jackie’s First Recording Session was set, and at that first date, Jackie Recorded RAM – JAM. The rest is Recorded History,

Next Step was for Jackie to record. a Long Playing album, JACKIE IN LONDON, which enables him to reach out and bring his own way of playing a variety of Tunes.

During his appearance with the COXSON’S ROCK STEADY REVUE in England last September (‘67), the British FANS were quick to acclaim Jackie and the Soul Vendors.

On this Album, EVENING TIME, the arrangements were being made for the Cool Cool of the Evening, THE PARADE OF ‘68 FADS.

GIRLS! GIRLS! in BIKINI, HIPSTERS, MINI in various colours, Latest Model portable record players, have dominated the Beaches, Parks and other Locations that offer Musical Entertainment. Jackie Mittoo and the Soul Vendors were first registered for participation in this Summer’s activities. This Sound is the kind of Music that Fans expect during the months of Summer in Jamaica.

SOUL BEAT! ROCK STEADY! BIG BEAT! BIG PLEASURE! that’s what you get consistently, when you’re hearing the SENSATIONAL SOUND called EVENING TIME.
