The Sunday mixtape on Sound Travels was a vintage affair, old-school Jamaican rocksteady the flavor and I savored this soulful sound and hope you did too. By vintage, we're talking 60's-era sounds from the style that was the precursor to reggae; a sound steeped in the same rhythm and blues that spawned rock and roll. While reggae obviously carved it's own path, it began with the blue beat sound that made last night's mix. If you missed it...
