"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. Sie erzählen, wie sie die turbulente Zeit der 1960er Jahre erlebten, in der sich die Karibikinsel politisch, sozial und ökonomisch stark veränderte. 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."

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
