Ken Boothe - Freedom Street

  • Sale
  • Regular price $29.00


First-ever vinyl reissue of the classic 1970 album from Mr. Rock Steady! Ken Boothe was the most soulful singer of the rocksteady era, often likened to a Jamaican Wilson Pickett, and his mid-'60s recordings for Clement "Coxsone" Dodd's Studio One label were and are among the genre's most coveted sides. In 1970, he moved to Leslie Kong's Beverley's imprint for this album, which continued his string of hits with the songs "Why Baby Why," "Now I Know," and the title tune, "Freedom Street." We've remastered this landmark reggae/rocksteady release to make it sound better than it ever has, and pressed it up in a red & yellow swirl vinyl edition limited to just 300 copies!
