CD Reviews

Explosive rocksteady is the bomb
john clifton | yorba linda, CA USA | 07/08/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this c/d is culled from two l.p. records produced by joe gibbs. gibbs first started producing in 1966, and has worked with legends such as clement "coxsone" dodd, lee "scratch" perry, and prince buster. the first record, "jackpot of hits," contains one of the first true rocksteady songs "hold them" by roy shirley, and it is this song's unique rhythm that helped create a genre. this record features the engineering/board work of lee perry. the second record, "explosive rocksteady," was mixed down by "niney" the observer and is every bit as tight as perry's work. these records feature beautiful vocal harmonies and the tightest musicians available. you would probably dig this record if you are down with duke reid's treasure chest work---highly recomended!"
ROCKSTEADY AT ITS BEST!

"Here is a great reissue of two Trojan released Joe Gibbs produced album.Definately a good buy for someone who likes rocksteady, and especially the Pioneers(who have 8 tracks here). Other great songs by Stranger Cole, Lyn Tait and The Jets,and the Versaltiles"
