Roacksteady: Talking Over Orange Street 1966-1968 on Kingston Sounds

Various - Rocksteady: Taking Over Orange Street 1966-1968


  • £15.99

Rocksteady took over Orange Street ,Kingston, Jamaica around 1966, the same time that an extreme heat wave hit the Jamaican Island. Some say this made the previous jerky ska rhythms too strenuous of an activity to partake in during the all night sound systems, so the beat was slowed down to a more leisurely pace. 

Whatever the reasons were, this two year period that ran until 1968 saw a host for new producers and singers take over the scene, giving the people what they wanted... Rocksteady!
