Federal Story

Ken Khouri
In the early 50s, Kenneth L Khouri, who was an immigrant from Lebanon, discovered a movable cutting machine in Jamaica. As soon as the adventurousness businessman spots the machine, which was second-hand imported equipment from America, surprisingly, he struck upon a good idea that could bring him fortune if he ventures a voice-letter business as a large number of Jamaicans were immigrating to England. Briefly, this is how the legendary Federal and the whole Jamaican recording industry got started.

At that time, Trinidadian music, Calypso was gaining popularity all over the world and Kenneth Khouri never missed this chance. He started to record Jamaican Mento bands at his small downtown office. In this small studio, local Mento and Jazz musicans gathered at the nighttime to record songs with a single microphone. Of course, the studio had no soundproof facility so they had to restart a recording session if a heavy vehicle passes by. Moreover, recording sessions were still continuing until the early morning, they had to record songs before birds start to sing. Those recordings were soon or later sent to Decca in England and they were pressed in 78rpm SP format. The records were imported back to Jamaica and sold at his general store.

Kenneth continued to develop his business by establishing Jamaica's first pressing plant called Record Limited and a recording studio so he could sell more of Mento music locally. Into the 1960's, the company name was changed to Federal Records and they build a new studio with the latest equipments. During the decade, many of the local producers such as Coxsone Dodd, Duke Reid & Price Buster visited the studio to record their early productions.

The eldest son of Kenneth Khouri, Paul Khouri recalls, "Bunny Goodison, a great engineer from Australia, was working for us. At that time, we were all learning. Equipments were very simple and music was very local. We all did not expect this would be recognized by world. Everything was just a fun!"

As Federal Records expands, he approached American major record companies such as Capital and others and became their franchise. They were now licensing worldwide hits to press and distribute within Jamaica. The agreement between them also provided him opportunities to visit their up-to-date studios and pressing plants in US where he was able to learn both technical and commercial sides of the business as well as chances to purchase secondhand equipments at low costs. Undoubtedly, Federal Records was monopolizing the Islands American popular music in terms of sales and distributions.

They had all facility needed for vinyl record productions. Recording studio, mastering studio, photo studio, design laboratory, and pressing plant were fully equipped. Paul said, "At 9 o'clock in the morning, an artist and musicians start their recording session, then track tapes were passed to the next room and to another room, the records were playing in the late afternoon at downtown record shops”

While Kenneth was enjoying his success in the late 60's, a fire broke out at the federal headquarter and the facility was partly damaged. The studio was reconstructed to an up-to-date world-class studio and ready to welcome first-class stars from all over the world. It is well known that American singer Paul Anka visited the studio and did a recording session. Apparently, it helped their name to be known in music circles. The studio asked Ernest Ranglin to join them as a musical director and continued to release commercial hits, which of many broke into local charts.

As the Cuban socialism starts affect the politics of Jamaica in the late 1970s, Kennth Khouri decided to immigrate to the United States. People, especially wealth people were afraid of socialism that could dispossess their assets and businesses. Eventually, he sold Federal Records to Bob Marley and became now Tuff Gong.

The humble Kenneth was always behind the scene therefore when people talk about the beginnings of the Jamaican music industry, majority would not mention his name. Only musical giants only recognize him as the godfather of the industry. Allegedly, Kenneth Khouri provided Coxsone Dodd's first mixing board. Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records, considers that he is one of the most significant figures in the Jamaican musicology. Indeed, he was playing an important role in the success of some greatest names in local music.

RICHARD KHOURI and LOUIS DAVIDSON
Although he was allegedly one of people inducted into the Jamaican National Honours and Awards for contribution to the development of Jamaican music, Kenneth died in 2003 before he could collect it. He will always be remembered as the honored pioneer of the Jamaican music industry.

Freshly dug out uptempo Ska beats by Toots Hibbert and Don Drummond - apparently never been released before!

Recorded in 1965 when Ska was at its peak, those are the typical Maytals uptempo beats with an unmissable Don D’s solo part on both. Taken directly from the great Daddy Ken Khouri’s master-tape which belongs to the Federal Studio. It’s quite a combination to pull both the Maytals and the Skatalites together, although what’s more remarkable is the fact they have been unreleased for the whole time.

Based on the Rhythm and Blues classic, this is a super rare uptempo Ska cover and for all Ska Man and the DJ’s!

Originally sung by Amos Milburn, in the 50’s this had been a sound system classic in Jamaica. There is nowhere else in the world but Jamaica could produce such a cover version and utterly convincing Drummond’s solo works nicely as a spice of this tune. Originally released on a blank label although it’s a super rare one to find - a proud copy to own and must have for all Ska Man. On the flip is a great vocal Ska yet the singer’s detail is completely unknown. *Recommended to pair this title with the instrumental version by Don Drummond on this very same series(DSR-FW7-04)

Previously unreleased mysterious uptempo vocal sung by unknown female (or boy) singer!

Typical but good female vocal style and the harmonica solo makes it even sweeter – not to miss for all Ska fans. Although we could be a little familiar to her voice, it is hard to define her name since there was no mention on the master-tape. Another mysterious vocal on the flip makes this 7” a generous double-sider.

An ultimate super killer Ska instrumental by an extremely unprolific band, brilliantly recorded in stereo. Although this newly signed band recorded exclusively for Federal releasing an LP, they play a little commercial uptown sound, however the Skatalites admitted their inferiority to this band’s performances.

The interestingly arranged “Old McDonald” on the flip features the guitarist Ernest Ranglin. Very rarely recorded in stereo for the time in Jamaica, only could have been done by the notorious Federal which clearly was known for its up-to-date setups.

A wonderful, previously unreleased Jamaican Ska in one and only jazzy big band style.

The length of this recording is slightly longer and all the solo parts are brightly emphasized. A rare piece with an adventurous development which is not quite typical for Jamaican music. A very fine Ska beat on the flip showcasing their original musicality. Also it is nice to see the appearance of Ernest Ranglin on both sides.

Merritoneトップ
In 1966, Merritone label was founded as a subsidiary of Federal Records when Ska beat was slowing down its tempo to take a next musical form called Rocksteady.

From sons of Ken Khouri, Paul and Richard, engineers at the Federal Records to even employees at their pressing plant - all whom involved at the label forwarded Merritone productions in a body.

They recorded many songs under Merritone label. However, those only appeared on vinyl records in limited quantities in Jamaica and a small bunch of titles were released on Island label in UK. Some of the recordings never saw the light, some became hardly known and many of them now considered being ultra rare records. Thus the label became a mysterious Rocksteady production in the Jamaican musicology.

The label name is originated from Winston Blake's sound system, Merritone. Federal Records, which was the largest record company of the time in Jamaica, often used young talented people like Winston, who knew much about trends of the fraternity for promoting their new materials. Interestingly, Federal Records used even the sound system name in this case.

Although Federal Records is known for compositions arranged by Ernest Ranglin, Trinidadian guitarist Lynn Taitt and the Jets were in charge of the Merritone recordings. Lynn Taitt took a prominent role as a forerunner of brand new Rocksteady sounds as he produced like Hopeton Lewis's 'This Music Got Soul.'

Merritone recordings were undoubtedly collectives of veteran musicians at Federal Records, high-technology recording facilities, traditions and proud of the record company. Many would still describe the sound so unique, elegant, sophisticated and authentic like no other.

As a part of "Story Of Federal Records - Tribute To Kenneth L. Khouri" program, Dub Store Records proudly presents 40 singles from master tapes.

Thanks to Paul Khouri, Steve Barrow, Noel Hawks, Jimmy Maloney and Cynthia,

Merritone label endorsed Henry Buckley as a star singer of the label during the Rocksteady period. He sings "Beware of all those rude boys going around with their guns, spoiling everybody's fun" to warn behaviors of Rude Boys. It seems Rudies were everywhere when the song was released in 1966. He also showcases his conscious lyrics with song ‘If I Am Right’. The artist tried to deliver profound messages to youths. Those recordings were taken straight from the original master tape for the reissue.

Tomorrow's Children were probably favored by uptown youths rather than downtown Rudies because of their funky, hard hitting sounds and lyrics. With those elements, they successfully created own killer style, which can be undoubtedly heard with ‘Bang Bang Rock Steady'. The group also versioned the Beatles' 'Rain' in fine Rocksteady style.

Hopeton Lewis - This Music Got Soul
Hopeton Lewis - Rocksteady
 
A side Hopeton Lewis - This Music Got Soul listen

'This Music Got Soul' is one of the earliest works by Mr. Rocksteady aka Hopeton Lewis. Interestingly, some would even say 'This Music Got Soul' is his debut single. When the song was released in 1966, it seems that the musical term "Rocksteady" did not exist but this classic clearly proves a new wave of Rocksteady was coming very near. The artist also sings 'Rock Steady' to highly praise the new genre. Reissued from the original master tape.

The Tartans were like the 70’s reggae all-stars, and this is their early big hit along with a rare Lynn Taitt’s instrumental!

Formed by Prince Lincoln, Cedric Myton and Devon Russell, the Tartans brilliantly represent the “oldies but goodies’”vibe on the A-side. Flipping over to the B-side is the Lynn Taitt’s interpretation of the Miriam Makeba’s hit tune. Mysteriously it’s been unknown if this rare piece has been put out as a single or still being unreleased.

Henry Buckley was supposed to be the next Rocksteady star after Hopeton Lewis, although in this tune he is credited as Henry IIIrd.Also Buckley was once called as Don Henry, so it seems Federal was perplexed how to promote him, however as a great singer, the quality of his music was always steady and promising.

Eric Monty Morris sings sufferers' protest song, "Blackman work so hard, but white man gets the money, the rich shall be richer, the poor shall be poorer, something must be done soon"... At the time, most of the artists including Eric Monty Morris mainly focused on singing about love but not about conscious themes so the recording was very exceptional. B-side features previously unreleased vocal material as well. It seems that both songs were recorded for the album "Jamaican Skarama (reissued by Dub Store Records: LP/CD503)" but did not end up on the album unfortunately.

A prominent singer backed by none other than the Skatalites, it is a symbolic Ska beat representing Kentone which will make everyone a smile.

Although the Maytals have recorded Ska tunes for Studio One, Prince Buster and many more, they might have taken a further step when recording for the Jamaican music industry’s godfather, Ken Kouri by singing it well tight and fiery. Even for the Federal side, it must have been quite special to hire the Skatalites for this project. One minute and half might be a little too short for an A side, though this one will make you want to slip it in your DJ box every time.

Leslie Butler, Federal Records’ piano genius, delivers a fusion of Jazz and Classic music. A glorious instrumental masterpiece comprises of beautiful Reggae, Soul and Jazz.

Classic ‘Rhapsody in Blue’, the original version of ‘Reggae Rhapsody’, was written by notable American composer and solo pianist George Gershwin in 1924. Nearly 50 years after, in 1973, Eumir Deodato edited the song and released it on CTI Records, which label was favored by Black music fans at that time. Leslie Butler recorded his keyboard version shortly after the release of Eumir Deodato version. This is another rare recording to be reissued for the very first time from the Federal catalogue. Side B features a Reggae fusion instrumental ‘Mystic Mood’ by Willie Lindo. The song became a hit and earned a position in his LP titled ‘Far and Distant’.

The leading pianist of Jamaican dance music since the 1930s, this is the only jazz album he recorded in the 60s.

George Moxey has made an effort in the making of Jamaican dance music since the 1930s, teaching local musicians and has been praised as “Uncle George”.

Born in Nassau, the capital of Bahama, Moxey moved to Jamaica in the 1930s where he formed and led an 8-piece band since 1939. His band took a big part in developing the local ballrooms and radio stations, therefore by the 1950s, he was a vital musician in Kingston music scene. This is a lounge style Caribbean jazz by himself and the Ernest Ranglin trio.

By the young Ranglin at the time, Moxey must have appeared like a giant although the trio’s performances beautifully support Moxey at all times.

It would be hard not to pay attention to the combination of this piano and guitar geniuses, the whole album is mainly constructed with the traditional calypso and jazz standards, though it also contains solo piano and organ ballads as well.

As Moxey used to play organs for churches, it’s interesting how you can hear bits and pieces of those influences in his music, however it may be difficult to separate the Churches and Bibles by the background of Jamaican music.

After leaving Jamaica, he became an ambassador of the Caribbean music and by the 50s he already become a legend there.

This sound is the zest of good ole’ days, daddy Ken Khouri's Federal Records and having it as a real background, Jamaican music develops into Ska, Reggae to modern Ragga.

Everything has its own roots, so as the Jamaican music.

9. Flamingo (Rock Steady)
10. Sling Shot
A very rare Rocksteady album by the Jamaican guitar virtuoso, Ernest Ranglin

Unlike all the other musicians in those days, Ranglin was not allowed to go between studios to record and release music as he wished because he was an exclusive employee of the Federal records. Thus it’s really hard to find a Rocksteady record with his name on it. Although whenever he finds a spare time, he would go to Duke Reid’s studio and play the guitar and bass as a sideman, often playing sessions with Lynn Taitt. According to Ranglin himself, “I felt really comfortable being at Duke Reid’s studio”, though sadly there have not been a single release of his solo guitar tune which was recorded there.

So here comes the album, it’s the rare Rocksteady instrumentals by the man himself.

Some of the main features would be “Summertime”, “Flamingo” and “Hold Me Tight”, the wickedest selection of the moist Rocksteady that will certainly catch your heart. Other than that, it’s got an exotic intro and uptempo “Sling Shot”, relatively arranged towards pop direction “Don’t Sleep In the Subway” and some ballads to represent the Federal’s widely ranged style that won’t go off after a long time, exactly how this one of the biggest leading labels in Jamaica had thought of.

This may not make Rude Boys in downtown growl, although it will clearly last eternally as Ranglin’s 60s best album to the future generations.

The Jamaican piano wizard, Leslie Butler presents a miraculous Jazz Funk album.

Because of his superior talent and intense personality, one of the most ingenious pianists Leslie Butler had a lack of releases, however he was given an exceptional chance by the Federal Records to record this one of the most peculiar albums in the history of Jamaican music.

This beautifully finished Jamaican Jazz Funk/Rare Groove album is mostly constructed with the traditional covers that all Jamaicans will know although with the wonderful arrangement, and very Jamaican, ensemble stripping aesthetics give the album a whole new character that can’t be heard elsewhere.This masterpiece should make it to the shelves of not only reggae fans but soul and jazz fans as well.

Leslie always committed on making a serious piece of music - never liked to make either of Jamaican popular music or business-like commercial music. He had a strong belief of not letting others to control his talent. Therefore there were often conflicts between him and producers or he was not even given a chance to record anything at all. It’s a really sad story, but this unfortunate musician’s lifestyle can be heard on the recordings such as “Guitar In Ernest – Ernest Ranglin (DSR-LP / CD-501)” and “Reggae Rhapsody – Leslie Butler (DSR-FEDS12-001).” Perhaps with this album in addition, it might be all enough.

First ever re-issue of 1965 Jamaican Latin-Calypso-Jazz album by the piano genius Cecil Lloyd, who led a 20-piece hotel band from the age of seventeen. In 1959, the maestro was asked to record an album for 20th Century Fox and he later released three albums on Studio One. Featuring a solid rhythm section with conga and percussion, A Night in Jamaica was produced by Ken Khouri for Federal's Kentone label. This enduring masterpiece still echoes across the beautiful Caribbean Sea.



It must be the despair of every experienced musician who has worked long and hard polishing and developing his talent to come upon someone like Cecil Lloyd.

For here is a young pianist whose total professional experience has consisted almost entirely of leading a hotel band in the British West Indies. Yet he has the style, the polish, the assurance and the individuality of a musician who has spent years absorbing and digesting the best examples of popular rhythm, harmony and phrasing. He has, justifiably, been called “the genius of the island of Jamaica”.

The first people who had an opportunity to become aware of the unusual abilities of Cecil Lloyd were the tourists who stopped at the fashionable Tower Isle Hotel in Jamaica. Cecil has been leading his own ten-piece band there since he was seventeen years old. The length of his stay there suggests that his appeal to tourists, who are not always the most musically perceptive people, was strong. Certainly it was evident that his own countrymen caught his message for they came from as far as Kingston, two and a half hours away, just to hear him.

One visitor to the islands was so impressed with Cecil that he decided to do something about him. He was Frank Gaylord, an American who was serving as entertainment director at the Tower Isle Hotel. Gaylord brought Cecil to the attention of 20th Century-Fox Records, showcasing a fascinating new talent, are the result.

It was probably natural that Cecil should come by an interest in music at an early age for his mother had been a student at Juilliard before she married the Rev. A. W. Knott (Cecil’s full name is Cecil Lloyd Knott – he dropped the family name for professional purposes). Cecil was born on March 4, 1936, in Spanish Town, Jamaica, but when he was two the family moved to Port Maria, a small town where his father had been put in charge of a church.

As the minister’s son, Cecil had easy access to the church organ and when he was four he began to try to pick out tunes on it.

“It was one of those organs that you pump with your feet,” he has recalled, “and my feet could just barely get enough wind in the instrument to hold a note for more than five seconds.”

When the family got a piano, Cecil really began to enjoy life. He received his instruction from both his parents (his father, like his mother, played piano and violin). They wanted him to play the violin but Cecil’s leaning to the piano was so obvious that they soon gave in.

“My urge to play the piano was so strong,” Cecil declared recently, “that right now I don’t even know the right way to hold a violin.”

He also had to overcome his mother’s idea that he should study medicine. Cecil did this by the simple process of going to work (without her permission) at the Tower Isle Hotel as soon as he had passed his high school examinations.

If there is any secret to Cecil Lloyd’s special talents it may be that he has consistently started doing what he wanted to do by instinct and later, undeterred by the fact that instinct had apparently let him directly to his goal, he has gone back to shore up his raw skill with special instruction. That was what he did after four months of playing at the hotel. He had found his métier but he still wanted to learn more about what he was doing. So he began taking lessons, this time away from his own home with a versatile Jamaican musician, Miss Brenda Smythe. As a result, he acquired an L.R.S.M., a London degree in music.

And as a band leader, Cecil continue the pattern of driving ahead on his own and then going back to study and fill in the gaps in his knowledge and skill. Wherever he may pursue his studies he may leave more knowledge than he brings away. Meanwhile, however, we have this recorded evidence of the technique of a fascinating new piano stylist.

10. This Poor Boy
A fundamental album released in 1966 that determined the way Rocksteady was going to journey.

In 1966, Rude Boys were at the peak of the fame with their notorious behaviors, while Ska gradually started to slow down its tempo. This album paved the way for a newborn music, Rocksteady, with rather slower and tighter rhythm approach. This album should be considered as one of the ten most important albums in Reggae history.

The descent from Ska, which had its derivation from Jazz or Rhythm and Blues, to Rocksteady, with its various potential elements which would be passed to the next decade of Reggae, has been allegedly created in this album with Trinidadian guitarist Lynn Taitt and his band The Jets as the backing band. Entitled “Take It Easy With The Rock Steady Beat!”, most of the tunes featured in this album were written for praising dancehall as if he’d have known this genre was going to rule the dance floors. Among the tunes in this album, “This Music Got Soul” was the coolest of all and called out the dawn of the Rocksteady era. This tune had a huge influence on the future developments of Reggae music.

12. The Last Watch
Crucial recordings of the multifaceted Jamaican Music from the early 1960's.
Funny and sharp, with the catchiest tunes – foundation music to move your feet!

Calypsos Down Jamaica Way is the significant piece to discover how Jamaican music, which was created by the fusion of the Jamaican indigenous Mento and popular Calypso. The album starts off with moody instrumental tune, 'Good Bye to Rome' that is perfectly harmonized by excellent performances of Sugar Belly's bamboo sax, Charlie Organaire's harmonica and banjo. Followingly, flute brows freely to pure Mento beat 'Go Fife Go'. Love song 'Yours' follows and Count Owen sings smoothly 'Lawd Some Men Could A Smart' to close the A-side.

The flip side of the album, Owen delivers the finest vocal with his specialty, cha-cha and Mento fusion in 'Careless Hands'. Other songs include 'Weed', 'Melody D'Amour' song being added a bit of European seasoning, 'Kingston Town' describes Kingston's moody atmosphere, Calypso style roots chanting 'Out The Fire', and a pure traditional Mento vocal on 'The Last Watch'. Throughout album, songs are rich in variety, and the technique of playing instruments is quite fluent. All songs are presented in high quality sound with Federal's highly equipped Hi-Fi technology.

Comparing to sound of the golden 50's, this album increased in easiness for listening as pop music, but it is never can be categorized as commercial music.
