The 100 greatest Rocksteady tunes #22

Big Mistake – The Basses (Coxsone Dodd Production)

A minor key masterpiece from Brentford Road. The jury is out on if this ever came out on a seven inch, most say not but it’s pretty much impossible to be certain. It did appear however on the Coxsone LP Get Ready Rocksteady and made a great album even better. The Basses AKA The Bassies were Clifford Morrison, George Blake and Richard Smith, this wasn’t their biggest tune but it’s a classic none the less. Sir Harry took the rhythm for his deejay outing Music School which came out on a pre release only, his deejaying doesn’t do much for the tune but at least it’s on a seven inch!

Get Ready Rocksteady has been reissued on both vinyl and CD by Studio One in the not too distant past and should still be available.
