First Class RocksteadyCelebrating the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Rocksteady music style, 17 North Parade presents “First Class Rocksteady”: a comprehensive 40-track collection of the pivotal selections from that genre that preceded reggae in Jamaica. The sound was a mid-step between ska, which was the leading island sound, and reggae – a sound that slows the tempo but keeps the guitar accent on the upbeat. This fine 2CD-set captures the work from some of the genre’s defining artists in state-of-the-art sound quality with sleeve notes and images!
