cd cover


Vol.9 brings us yet more good Rock Steady from around 1966/7. The Heptones "Crying Over You" brings the new slowed down Rock Steady beat. Two very soulful tracks from Ken Boothe with "You Left The Water Running" sounding more like a USA soul singer with the Studio One beat than a Jamaican release.With 15 tracks it is better value than the previous volumes. Licensed by DownBeat Records issued on Island Rock A Shacka CD UPCH 1304 Japan.
