Intoxicating rocksteady on Lynn Taitt’s greatest hits

lynn-taitt-the-jets-rock-steady-greatest-hitsLegendary Trinibagoan guitar ace Lynn Taitt is one of the key architects in rocksteady and reggae and played on countless of sessions in the 60s and 70s. And he also has a number of tunes and albums credited to himself.

One of those is the rare and recently reissued Greatest Hits, originally issued in 1968 on the Merritone label. On this beautiful set he has arranged instrumental versions of rocksteady classics, cuts which he graces with his tuneful guitar playing.

But this set offers more than just magnificent guitar licks. Several tunes also come with spectacular horn blasts and horn solos.

This is the swinging and hip-shaking sounds of the 60s.
