Mr Rock Steady

LP (Item 57796) Studio One, 1967 — Condition: Very Good
That's MISTER Rock Steady to you! Ken sings a sweet batch of Jamaican soul tunes in this classic album cut for Clement Dodd – with titles that include "Puppet On A String", "My Heart Is Gone", "Home Home Home", "Give Me Back My Heart", "Give Me The Right", "The Girl I Left Behind", and "Rock Steady".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early pressing – with red Studio One logo and deep groove! Cover has very light wear on the opening edge – but is quite nice overall.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Doreen Shaffer

First Lady Of Reggae
Pama/Economy (UK), Late 1960s. Very Good
Doreen Shaffer may not be the first lady of reggae, but she's got a wonderfully soulful style that works very well with the material – all in a laidback style that's in the best Pama Records mode! LP, Vinyl record album
Coxsone (Jamaica), Late 60s. Very Good+
An early classic from the Studio One/Coxone catalog – and a set that has a sound that's every bit as iconic as its cover – the kind of record that really helped set a new standard for soulful sounds from Jamaica! Alton Ellis is almost in early Marvin Gaye territory here – working ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bob Marley & The Wailers

Bob Marley & The Wailers – Live
Island, 1975. Very Good
A great global showcase for the growing power of Bob Marley – an excellent live set recorded in London in 1975, and a date that shows Bob and The Wailers working with the crowd in this really universal spirit! The group's almost got a funkier current here than on some of their studio record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rupununi Safari

Steaming Jungle
Ariwa Sounds (UK), 1995. Very Good+
... LP, Vinyl record album
Mobile Fidelity, 1977/1995. Near Mint- Gatefold
Maybe the best place to start if you're looking to dive into the short but incredible legacy of music left behind by Bob Marley – as the album marked a real global turning point for the singer, and includes a number of tracks that are still his standout classics after all these years! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Desmond Dekker

Black & Dekker
Stiff (UK), 1980. Near Mint-
Surprisingly great later work from the legendary Desmond Dekker – a set that should have been a sloppy cash-in during the ska revival, but material that shows Desmond still very much at the top of his game! The production and backings show a bit of a late 70s British touch, but Dekker's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mad House, 1994. Very Good+

Dexter Gordon

GO
Blue Note, 1962. Sealed
A seminal set of work from the Blue Note scene of the 60s – a record that's not just noteworthy for its role in helping return tenorist Dexter Gordon to the spotlight, but also for the fantastic work of pianist Sonny Clark in the quartet! Sonny's in wonderful form throughout – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriff

Something To Listen To
Blue Note, 1970. Near Mint-
An obscure little album by Jimmy – a real lost session that kind of fell between his Blue Note and Solid State years. The set's got Jimmy grooving in 2 different modes – one a more traditional soul jazz organ style, similar to other 60s work, but almost tighter; the other a freer, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

East Broadway Run Down
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
One of the most free-wheeling Sonny Rollins albums of the 60s – an album that features some very long, extended tracks that really break out from some of the straighter moments of Sonny's mid-60s recordings! The title track is an incredible 20 minute workout – one that almost feels ... LP, Vinyl record album
