Double vinyl LP pressing. The immediate successor to ska, the soulful, melodic sound of rock steady first developed during the long hot Jamaican summer of 1966 and reigned supreme thereafter for two glorious years before finally being superseded by the more energetic style of reggae. Despite it's relatively brief period as the island's national sound, the rhythms of many of it's biggest hits have continued to influence and inspire music-makers to the present day, resulting in renewed interest in the sub-genre among record buyers in recent years. This superb collection features 24 of the most popular recordings of the rock steady era, including the UK hits, '007', 'Train To Skaville' and 'It Miek' and The Maytals' anthemic dance-filler, '54 46 That's My Number'. Pressed on high quality 140gm vinyl and presented in a stylishly designed sleeve, the album not only provides the ideal introduction to this hugely popular and influential sound, but is also a must for established fans of the Jamaican sub-genre, with many of the tracks appearing on vinyl for the first time in decades.
