LP version. 2012 release. Welcome to the rocksteady sound from Jamaica. Toward the end of 1965, some say due to the extreme heatwave that was hitting the Island, the people that followed the Sound System dances demanded a slower beat so they could still move and groove to the all-night musical affairs. So the jerky ska swing was slowed down to a steady beat that also allowed the songs cut at this time to shine through. So sit back and enjoy the tunes that rocked the Island between 1966-1968. Tracks by: Roy Shirley & Glen Adams, Uniques, Sensations, Pat Kelly, Dawn Penn, Slim Smith, Delroy Wilson, Roy Shirley, Glen Adams, Winston Samuels and Ann Reid.
