The last few tunes here are 68-71 reggae, not rocksteady!!!

Also there's quite a bit of 68-71 reggae in the other section!!

Alton Ellis is known for his rocksteady sides, yes.

But he made excellent 70s reggae sides too such as Deliver Us, Black Mans Land, Back To Africa etc.

The Ethiopians had more than the one album and Leonard Dillon continued making great albums as The Ethiopian into the 80s after his singing partner Steven Taylor was killed in 75 in a hit and run accident.

It's only a case of listening, you all know what the difference is between rocksteady and reggae guys...the whole point of setting this up in sections was so that posts were puit in the right place.

Thnaks for pointing it out Gordy, not had chance to come in here for ages.

I'm not pedantic about much but it bugs me when people for example refer to things like Liquidator and 007 as Ska and don't even take ten minutes to have a quick read up on what's what. No excuses now with the t'internet. History of Jamaican music is everywhere if ya Google it.
