V/A-Girls Like Dirt

Some serious, stone-cold, classics. From Justin Hinds' 'Save a Bread' to two of the best Creations cuts. Great stuff. Probably not a good place to start for people who don't know rocksteady since this a little more lo-fi and definitely fewer hits than the Trojan box. 'Let's Go To The Dance' by Prince Buster breaks my heart every time I hear it. The lyric: Loving her is no disgrace, but it seems to me, another guy's been sipping my tea...

Surely you knew, once the weather changed, that this is all that would be getting posted.

Sit back, rock steady.

Ethiopians-All The Hits and So Much More


Been quite a while, I know.

In order to encourage the idea of relaxing, here's some of the best shit I have ever heard to "relax" to. Vocal melodies that would make Dennis Wilson blush, and simply fantastic harmonies as well. Simply a must have for the summer and beyond. I dare you, double dare you even, to listen to this and not want to ride your bike down a crowded street on your way to some water. A great album to fish to, to dance to, to fuck to. What more can a man ask.
