Various - Duke Reid Rock's Steady (Trojan Fan Club) 2xCD
Bookmark and Share
Track Listing / Description Original Trojan Duke Reid rocksteady selection vastly expanded.  Fifty-three gems from the Treasure Isle studio from the period when Reid ruled the roost and ska morphed into rock steady, that fabled hot Jamaican summer when the musicians slowed the beat down to accommodate the comfort of the dancehall patrons, or when the sound men noticed the half-speed moves of the rude boys as they danced to the ska and began to commission the musicians to create music that fitted in with their moves, or... well, who knows.  What is a fact is that, along with the contemporary productions of his great rival Coxsone Dodd, the sublime music compiled here provided the real blueprint for the reggae to come.
