Produktinformationen "VA - Links & Friends More Rock Steady (LP)"
Jamaica’s rare rocksteady label Links was running for almost two years between 1967 to 1968. The Links label is very sought after with collectors & selectors especially with tracks like Ken Boothe’s Can’t You See, The Gaylads Looking For A Girl and Mama Look to name a few. The founder of the Links label Mr Harris ‘BB’ Seaton was an original member of The Gaylads, one of the most important groups during the Ska and Rock Steady era. BB Seaton explains how the Links label came about at a time where artists could not earn fair payment from producers for their recordings. The Gaylads with Ken Boothe, The Melodians and Delroy Wilson joined forces and decided to control their own recordings from the exploitation of the producers. The four artists came together to manage and control the Links label to obtain all rights and share their profits. BB Seaton was the back bone in writing the songs and managing the productions/arrangements whilst the other artists gave all their talent to singing the tracks to their best performance. The Links label was short run and sadly demised after 2 years due to unfortunate circumstances. All is revealed in Brian Keyo’s liner notes!. This album compiles the Links label’s output for the first time. Available on Japanese Rock A Shacka label in LP, CD digipak format, and digital download.
