"This is actually an anthology of rock steady classics whose subject is the "rude boy" movement which grew up during the scorching summer of 1966. Rude boys or rudies first sported a kind of hip hooliganism, then a more cultural and politically minded activism. Remember when hip hop started the "Stop the Violence" campiagn? Well, here that's the title of a soulful cut by The Valentines. Alton Ellis, Desmond Dekker, Derrick Morgan, Stranger Cole, and Lee Perry are among the more famous names to contribute. Check out The Clarendonians' "Blam Blam Fever" (as in gunfire, see?) and The Rulers' "Copasetic" ("It was no-ho-ho-ho-hot...copasetic" they croon.)"
