V.A. - LISTEN UP! ROCKSTEADY (LP)


"Welcome to the ROCKSTEADY SOUND from Jamaica. Towards 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 the ROCK- STEADY Sound that hit the town... To celebrate Jamaica's 50 Years of Independance 1962-2012. We have put together a set of releases that cover the musical styles that reggae mutated into through it's history, SKA, ROCKSTEADY, ROOTSREGGAE, DUB, DJSTYLE & DANCEHALL... So Listen Up! and enjoy!"
