these lovingly selected tunes provided the soundtrack to the heady times of the late 60s, when Jamaica was creating music that resonated with a particular part of the globe, many miles away.

The Skinhead sound grew from the music that was coming out of Jamaica around 1968 to 1971 and was adopted by the British Youth. The music seemed tailor-made for their sharp look and natty dress style, a style that was heavily influenced by the Jamaican Rude Boy look.
