Foundation ska by Skatalites( Recording )

Rocksteady : the roots of reggae by Staša Bader( Visual )

Rocksteady - The Roots of Reggae ist eine musikalische Reise ins goldene Zeitalter der jamaikanischen Musik. Zum ersten Mal nach 40 Jahren kommen die Musikerinnen und Musiker der Rocksteady-Ära in Kingston zusammen, um ihren grossartigen Sound auferstehen zu lassen und ihre Geschichte zu erzählen. Tonaufnahmen im ursprünglichen Tuff-Gong-Studio, seltene Archivbilder und Gespräche mit den Künstlern zu Hause und an historischen Orten zeichnen ein farbiges Bild der legendären Rocksteady-Zeit. Begleitet von zahlreichen Hits und Evergreens wie "By the Rivers of Babylon", "The Tide is High" und "You Don't Love Me Anymore (No No No)", werden die Gründer dieses grossen musikalischen Erbes, zu denen auch Bob Marley gehörte, vorgestellt.

Rocksteady : the roots of reggae by Moss RAXLEN( Recording )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Sampler ist quasi der Begleitsoundtrack zum gleichnamigen Film, einer Hommage an die goldene Ära des Rocksteady, einem Vorläufer des Reggae. Für diese Huldigung fanden sich einige altgediente Stars wieder zusammen, die schon in den 1960er-Jahren wichtige Protagonisten der Szene waren: Leroy Sibbles, Hopetown Lewis, U-Roy, Derrick Morgan, Dawn Penn, Marcia Griffith u.a. interpretieren ihre damaligen Hits neu. "What's surprising is how powerfully some of these old-timers can still perform ... overall, all of the singers acquit themselves somewhere between quite well and beautifully, and the instrumental arrangements and playing are excellent. A must for nostalgic rocksteady fans" (www.allmusic.com). Titelliste: 1. People rocksteady 2. Sounds & pressure 3. Silent river runs deep 4. Stop that train 5. Freedom street 6. Tougher than tough 7. You don't love me (No no no) 8. Love me today 9. Rivers of Babylon
