sit back & enjoy the tunes that rocked jamaica between ‘66-‘68 the rock- steady sound that hit the town.

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 & groove to the all night musical affairs. so the jerky ska swing was slowed down to a steady beat. kingston sounds have put together this impressive set that cover the musical styles that reggae mutated into: ska,  rocksteady, roots-reggae, dub, dj-style & dancehall.
