Title: Duke Reid Rock's Steady / Various
Product Type: VINYL LP

Vinyl LP pressing. In honor of the 50th year anniversary of the UK's first Trojan label, Music On Vinyl proudly make available once more the album that got the ball rolling back in the summer of 1967. The first of a series of classic albums from the legendary Trojan catalog that will see issue throughout the year, the erroneously titled Duke Reid Rock's Steady was originally released by Island Records to promote their new Trojan label, an imprint launched to specifically showcase the productions of legendary Treasure Isle Records boss, Arthur 'Duke' Reid. Simultaneously issued in Jamaica as Rock Steady Beat, the LP highlights the best of Reid's output from the preceding months and proved so popular back in '67 that pressings quickly sold out on both sides of the Atlantic. Now, 50 years on, lovers of the coolest sound to emanate from Jamaica's golden shores can finally own a copy of this seminal collection without needing to spend a duke's ransom for the pleasure!
