The Rockers Sound (aka Steppas) came from the mid '70s and was created during sessions with The Revolutionaires band at Channel 1. Drummer Sly Dunbar came up with a new "Militant" style double drumming on the snare drum that seemed to add some credence to the political/Rasta based lyrics that were so prominent around this time. So for this compilation, Kingston Sounds have pulled together some of the best cuts from this period, when producer Bunny Lee was on the top of his game and the sound in town to get on board with was "Rockers"... So sit back and enjoy another period in reggae's history that still sounds as good as when it was created way back when. Features: Cornell Campbell, Dennis Brown, Johnny Clarke, Junior Delgado, I Roy, Leroy Smart, Lloyd Chambers, Morwells, Jackie Mittoo & The Aggrovators, Horace Andy, and Bim Sherman. CD version includes four bonus tracks featuring: Earth & Stone, Johnny Clarke, Tommy McCook & Bobby Ellis, and I Roy.
