Boomkat product review for:

various - Listen Up! Rocksteady

"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..."
