From the archives of the cult record label Island-Records appears “Island Presents: Rock Steady”, the new compilation of songs from which reggae developed. Also included is the song that gave the genre its name: “Rock Steady” - here in a version by Hopeton Lewis, alongside the paradigmatic “People Rocksteady” by The Uniques. Derrick Morgan also hits the mark with “Conquering Ruler”. Rock Steady is also the Jamaican counterpart to American soul of the 1960s; it can be heard well in Pat Kelly's “Somebody's Baby” on the coupling. And you have to look for a nicer, more melancholy, more authentic reggae love song than “A Thing Of The Past” by Rock Steady Queen Phyllis Dillons for a long time.
