Tells the story of the Rocksteady era (1966-69), considered by music experts to be the golden age of Jamaican music.

"Fifty years ago, Trojan Records began its intensive campaign of introducing Jamaican music to the rest of the world. Hip, well-connected and extremely fast on their feet, Trojan ensured they heard the best singles first, and rapidly secured the rights to share them with an insatiable new audience thousands of miles from Jamaica. .... To celebrate Trojan's golden jubilee, MOJO is honoured to team up with the rejuvenated label for a deep dive into their storied catalogue. The result is Reggae Nuggets, a new treasure of roots, rocksteady, ska, and all Jamaican points in between. - John Mulvey, Editor, MOJO -- Adapted from container
Rocksteady : the roots of reggae by Moss RAXLEN( Recording )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 23 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
