CD Reviews

Great rocksteady and ska in the classic sytlee!

"The Bluebeats play true jamaican style rocksteady and ska (with a bit of reggae and dub as well), without falling into the trap of trying to sound jamaican - no mean feat! This CD is a soulful trip to the islands that will have you singing along with this tuneful and spiritual songs. The original numbers deal with everything from love and heartbreak to the homeless and the afterlife. Also included are some classic rocksteady and ska covers including "Down At The Trainline" and "The Fits Is On Me." As an added bonus, two dub versions are also on the CD. If you are a fan of true roots style Jamaican music or have started to listen to ska via the current third-wave, this CD will make a great addition to your collection."

"Vocal based ska/rocksteady with little or no horns was a popular staple of jamaican music in the early 1960's. The maytals, the gaylads and the eithopians all had a gospel influenced style of ska. Today it is very rare to find a ska band that plays this style of music. The bluebeats, however, do it wonderfully. I own over 200 ska/rocksteady albums and the bluebeats "dance with me" ranks up there at number 2 (the maytals "blah, blah, blah" ranks at #1).If you are just getting into ska music, listen to this cd with an open mind, because in time you will truely appreciate the brilliance."
