Product Details
Kingston Sounds present Skinhead Reggae 1969, a compilation focusing on the Jamaican reggae sounds tied to the skinhead movement. "The sound of now..." mentioned in "The Return of Jack Slade" by Derrick Morgan was the sound of 1969/1970, the sound of Jamaican reggae. The look at the time was the skinhead fashion borrowed heavily from the Jamaican rude boy style. The skinhead movement started around 1968 and by the following year of 1969 became the style and fashion of many British teenagers. The uniform of the skinheads consisted of boots, braces and jeans and the upbeat Reggae sound seemed to match the style perfectly. Never before has a music matched a look more perfectly than the pairing of skinhead/rude boy look with the Jamaican reggae sound. So stand up and move your feet one more time to the skinhead reggae sound.

Features: Bunny Lee All Stars, Derrick Morgan, SS Binns, King Horror, The Prophets, Max Romeo, The Hippy Boys, The Des All Stars and Lloyd Chambers.
