The 100 greatest Rocksteady tunes #12

Keith And Tex – Tonight (Derrick Harriott production)

A rocksteady anthem of the first order. Keith And Tex’s other major hit Stop That Train was number 40 on this list, I’ve always preferred Tonight but there’s very little in it if truth be told. Both tunes sound like they were recorded at the same session, if that’s true then what a session that must have been!

The Tonight rhythm has been used for many versions over the years but unusually there have also been many cover versions and adaptations of the the original song which says a lot for the quality of this tune. Derrick Harriott struck gold with this pair, why on earth didn’t they record for anyone else as a duo?

Tonight is on the Crystal LP Stop That Train.
