Musical Combination - Ska, Rocksteady & early Reggae

Playing tracks by

CANNONBALL BRYAN TRIO, The Melodians, BORIS GARDNER, G.G. ALLSTARS, Lloyd clarke and more.

Another collection of 60's classics, all dubbed from 45's, as you will be able to tell from the dubious sound quality of the Boris Gardner instrumental "Never My Love", but it's a very rare tune and one I've not seen on other podcasts so thought it was worth including. There are a couple of rare Treasure Isle 45's, "Funky Beat" and the original UK 45 of "It's You I Love", I prefer the pure rocksteady version released years later but again, it's not been compiled very often so I thought I'd include it here. There's some belting ska, soulful rocksteady and top boss sounds so I hope you enjoy it,

No problem - thanks for listening - it's hard remembering what I've already used or not as I've done two dozen of these on other podcast sites over the last 6 months. You can find most of them here if interested:

Enjoyed this very much! Many I've never heard before. Thanks Pete!!
