When people think of Tough Gong they usually think of Bob Marley and rightly so, as he was nicknamed and often called Tough Gong and from this his early releases which came out on the Tough Gong label. But Tough Gong was also the name of a recording complex named after Bob Marley hat included a top level recording studio, pressing plant and distribution centre that would allow reggae music to carry on many years after his sad and too early demise.
Welcome to the ROCKSTEADY SOUND from Jamaica. Towards the end
of 1965 some say due to the extreme heatwave that was hitting the Island,
the people that followed the Sound System Dances demanded a slower
beat so they could still move and groove to the all night musical affairs.
So the jerky SKA swing was slowed down to a steady beat that also
allowed the songs cut at this time to shine through.
So sit back and enjoy the tunes that rocked the Island
between 1966-1968 the ROCK
Jackie Edwards voice can be heard on hundreds of Ska, R&B, Soul,
Rocksteady records. In fact all the incarnations that reggae revolved into.
He was at the birth of Island Records and his distinctive soulful voice
has rightly given him the moniker of the original Cool Ruler.
