Slim Smith w/ Undercover

Where do you start? Well he was first ever great Jamaican rocksteady 'singer'. With silky smooth vocals he had sublime a solo career heralding in the 'soul and rocksteady sound' with numerous hits for Coxonne @Studio One after being the lead vocalist in The Techniques @Duke Reid until '65 and latterly The Uniques @Bunny Lee and @TheObserver up til his tragic and troubled death in '73. His tunes just have that golden era sound, with heavy leaning towards the early Motown sound especially The Impressions which they covered numerous versions. Still sampled today, big rocksteady relicks with a Slim sample, never fail to thrill. Everyone needs some @SlimSmith in their life. Pure Soul.
