• 17 tracks unavailable digitally
• Includes tracks new to CD
• Features some of the biggest late Sixties Jamaican hits

Having previously showcased Clancy Eccles’ output from 1969 and 1970 on “Freedom & Fire Corner” (DBCCD050) and “Foolish Fool & Herbsman Reggae” (DBCCD053), the music-maker’s influential rock steady and proto-reggae recordings provide the focus for this brand new collection.

Recorded between mid-1967 and late 1968, the tracks range from major Jamaican hits to painfully rare obscurities, performed by an equally diverse assortment of performers that include virtual unknowns alongside such eminent artists as Alton Ellis, Eric ‘Monty’ Morris, Ernest Ranglin and Eccles’s long-standing friend and associate, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.

With 17 tracks unavailable on any format for decades, this fascinating compilation is a must for fans of rock steady and boss reggae, with the set superbly demonstrating the ever-developing sound of Jamaican music over a period now widely regarded as the most compelling in its history.
