Kingston Sounds LP 16 review

Rocksteady Fever hit Jamaica around 1966 when the jerky Ska rhythms slowed down to a more leisurely sexy pace. Some say due to the extreme heat that hit the
island that year, making the frenzied dance routines of the earlier sounds seem like hard work in the all night Sound System Sessions. Others would say Reggae’s beat is always evolving and changing into something slightly different and moving with
the times.

Whatever the reasons were, this two year period that ran until 1968, would see some of the power escape from the big three producers, Clement ‘Coxone’ Dodd, Prince Buster and Duke Reid, who ruled the airwaves. They had to finally make
room for the new wave of up and coming producers who had something to say.

Such names as Joel Gibson (Joe Gibbs), Sonia Pottinger, Derrick Harriot and the most prolific of them all Mr Bunny Lee, would unleash some fine music in
this fascinating if short lived period in Reggae’s history. We have compiled some of the biggest hits from the Rocksteady era alongside some lesser known cuts we believe deserve to be re-evaluated.

Rocksteady was an inspirational time and some may say a little overlooked, but we hope you agree with us when we say that it bought us some outstanding music. So sit back and enjoy some Rocksteady straight from the dance floors of Jamaica.

Hope you enjoy the set…….
