About this product

In the summer of 1966, a variety of factors led to the rapid tempo of Ska giving way to the slower, more lilting sound of Rock Steady.

Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle was at the cutting edge of this musical revolution and throughout the era’s brief yet glorious reign, it dominated the national scene, issuing a plethora of major works, performed by an array of talented vocal acts, backed by the legendary Tommy McCook & the Supersonics band.

This, the second in the ‘Treasure isle Presents’ series, highlights what many to believe to be the finest Rock Steady recordings ever to see issue – quite simply, Jamaican music could never sound this soulful ever again.
