Steady Shock

Ready for a razorsharp rocksteady instrumental? Good, 'cause here's Lyn Taitt, that gifted guitarist who more or less invented the style of rocksteady, the remarkably slower follow-up to ska. Incidentally, Taitt was born on the island of Trinidad, not Jamaica. His Rock A Shock was originally released on the legendary Joe Gibbs' Amalgamated label back in '67. Cool tune or what?
