      100 Greatest Rocksteady Tunes : 100 – 11

      It’s taken five years but the final ten of the DanceCrasher 100 greatest Rocksteady tunes will start soon. This series has been really popular which is hugely gratifying and has made all the work involved more than worthwhile, so thanks to everyone who has left comments or spoken to me about this over the years.

      I’ve a feeling the last 10 will be a little controversial in places but that’s fine, this was always one persons list and anyone else’s would undoubtedly be different. Please keep sending in your own comments about the tunes that are here and the tunes that you think are missing, for a style that lasted three years at best it’s a tribute in itself that there are so many superb recordings to choose from.

        well, i’m not sure whether I’ve let a comment before but just want to thank to the author for the superb work. though this tracks i’ve learnt a lot about rocksteady, not to mention the pleasure to discover new tracks, artists, producers… i’m really looking forward to the top ten. big up!

        I’ve been following this countdown for ages, and I’m really grateful. I have discovered so many tunes I now love and cherish (I was delighted to see The Clarendonians Im Sorry and Lonely Heartaches show up on the latest Pressure Sounds release after discovering them here). I was very happy to see ‘Bus Dem Shut’ in the top ten, cos its one of my all time favourites. I love the mixture of information, label pictures and soundclips. Its been a very informative journey.
        But if its truly a list of ‘greatest’ Rocksteady tunes, I do however think that there are some massive omissions, particularly of the Studio One variety, some really obvious and immortal tunes like (off the top of my head):
        Dawn Penn – No no no
        Soul Vendors – Rockfort rock
        Alton Ellis – Im still in love with you
        The Heptones – Pretty looks isnt all
        Carlton and the Shoes – Love me forever
        Ken Boothe – ‘Moving away’,
        The Techniques – ‘Queen Majesty’ and ‘You dont care’
        Hopeton Lewis – Take it easy
        Keith and Tex – Stop that Train
        and as i mentioned before The Uniques – My Conversation.
        I know these songs are extremely well-known, but they are all beautiful and era-defining, and the basslines and riddims have been versioned endlessly all the way through to the dancehall era. It seems a shame not to acknowledge these masterpieces.
        Having said that, its been more educational to read about some of these lesser celebrated jewels. And im dying to see what the top ten will be!! please dont make us wait too long πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      • Carl

        Ive just noticed that 3 of the last 4 songs i listed are in fact featured in your countdown….I should have double checked before i posted the last comment, i was writing off the top of my head. The main point i was making was that your Top 100 has been a pleasure to follow (despite what i would consider as omissions or misplacements, and a penchant for favouring the less obvious), and i have learned loads!
        Thanks again

      • Doctor Zhivago

        Glad to see the final countdown, there should be at least one Wailers tune in the Top 10 and a few Coxsone chunes, Hurting Inside, Rougher Yet something from Bob Andy’s Song Book would be my choice, but as you said before, it’s all a matter of personal taste. Did I mention the Call OF The Drums. Anyway, thanks for the hard work
