Trojan Records – The Best Of Rock Steady Vol. 1

Trojan Records Presents - Trojan Records – The Best Of Rock Steady Vol. 1

Part of the first wave in a series of LP’s celebrating the re-launch of Trojan Records in the US.

During the long, hot summer of 1966, Jamaica’s national sound underwent a dramatic transformation, culminating in the rapid tempo of ska ultimately supplanted by the slower, more soulful sound of rock steady. Twelve of the most influential records from the original rock steady era – including Desmond Dekker & The Aces, Lee Perry, The Upsetters – are collected here
