Siren Records

First collection of Beverley's Records revered rock steady recordings. Featuring numerous rock steady classics. With ten recordings new to CD! Widely revered by Jamaica music aficionados, Leslie Kong's Beverley's Records released some of the finest recordings to see issue in Jamaica following it's launch at the start of the 1960s, through to it's close in 1972, following the premature passing of it's founder the previous year. During this golden age of Jamaican music, the label's roster included such legendary artists Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, The Maytals, The Pioneers, The Gaylads, The Melodians and Bob Marley And The Wailers, but while the recordings of these giants have provided the focus of numerous compilations over the years, the work of the lesser- known acts to record for Kong has remained largely overlooked. This 2CD collection sets to address this oversight by bringing together the cream of Beverley's less familiar late ska, rock steady and proto reggae sides from late 1966 to the close of '68. While the names of those featured may not be widely familiar, the standard of the music rates alongside the very best of Beverley's output during this fascinating hugely creative period of Jamaican music history
