The 100 Greatest Rocksteady Tunes (60-51)

The 100 Greatest Rocksteady Tunes Ever!Another set of the top Rocksteady tunes from the great people over at DanceCrasher.

I was beginning to think they forgot about the whole thing. This set includes some of the most classic Rocksteady tunes ever produced. Choices from Bunny Lee and Derrick Morgan productions, a Soul Bros. hit, huge Phyllis Dillon and Paragons tunes, and way more.

Each entry (as always) includes wonderful information about the specific choice on the list and where it’s currently available along with a small sound sample.

Let em know to keep the list coming – we’re only half way done!
