The Ethiopians – Let’s Ska And Rock Steady

•    Originally released in 1995, this reissue features 12 of the greatest ska and rock steady tunes

•    Songs include Engine ’54, Train To Glory and their UK #10 hit Train To Skaville

•    The Ethiopians were one of Jamaica’s most popular groups and this is a must for any ska or rock steady collection

Essentially a mouthpiece for singer and songwriter Leonard Dillon, the Ethiopians were one of Jamaica’s most influential vocal groups during their heyday. Not only did the duo (completed by Stephen Taylor) spearhead the transition between ska and rocksteady, Dillon’s heavily Rastafarian lyrics also paved the way for the socially conscious roots reggae era that was to come. Responsible for a significant number of hits between the mid-1960s and early 1970s, the group was also one of the first Jamaican acts to perform widely in Britain.
