Rocksteady fever hit Jamaica around 1966 when the jerky ska rhythms slowed down to a more leisurely pace, some say due to the extreme heat that hit the island that year. whatever the reasons were, this two year period that ran until 1968 would see some of the power escape from the three big producers, Clement 'coxsone' Dodd, Prince Buster and Duke Reid. They had to finally make room for the new wave of up and coming producers who had something to say. Such names as Joel Gigson (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. Here Kingston Sounds have compiled some of the biggest hits from the rocksteady era alongside some lesser known cuts that deserve to be re-evaluated.
