The Back Of The Class
Rock-steady music is basically ska that’s been slowed down a bit. The result sounds like a blend of reggae and soul music. Imagine The Specials, but far smoother and less frantic. The vocals sound more like old American soul and R&B, but the music has a very dance-friendly melodic vibe. I thought all the songs here were terrific. They’re all around 2-3 minutes.|
3.Sort of a 1920s big band feel with dreamy vocals.
6.Cool keyboard work. Instrumental track.
8, 9.Two bands doing the same song about heartbreak.
13.Bluesy lounge feel. Instrumental.
14.Sweet love song with crooning background vocals.
15.Female singer for a change! Nice track.
