Vinyl LP pressing. Trojan Records - The Best of Trojan Rock Steady Vol. 1 is one of five LPs in a series of newly created Trojan Records compilations celebrating the 2015 re-launch of the infamous Trojan Records reggae label. During the long, hot summer of 1966, Jamaica's national sound underwent a dramatic transformation, culminating in the rapid tempo of ska ultimately supplanted by the slower, more soulful sound of rock steady. This set contains 12 of the most influential records from the original rock steady era performed by artists such as Desmond Dekker & The Aces, Lee Perry, The Upsetters and many others.
