This show was 5th in the global roots reggae chart and 29th in the global reggae chart.
I suppose this selection can mostly be considered Rocksteady, which is good, as that's what I intended it to be. If one were to argue the statistical and historical years that span the Rocksteady era, I'm certain that some of these joints might not conform. So, one might call a dusting of these selections "Early Roots" or "Insert Description"
My intention for the "Champion Sound" series was to make 3 volumes, which would encapsulate the 3 golden periods of Jamaican music: Ska,Rocksteady & Roots. However,Mr. Galactus made a mix just to make mine look bad (which worked)...so now we'll have more volumes. I suspect that post the uploading of this mix, Mr. G will make a similarly-styled, but far superior mix. Either way, I intend to press on.
As you may have noticed, I'm moving backwards. This means Ska is up next! Don't pretend you don't like Ska. Everyone likes Ska...ask your mom.
Enjoy the scrumptious sounds from the biggest little island on Earth!
Get ready...rock steady!!
