Description
From the label:

Jamaica’s rare rock steady label “Links” was running for almost 2 years between 1967 to 1968. The “Links” label is very sought after with collectors & selectors especially tracks like Ken Boothe’s “Can’t You See”, The Gaylads' “Looking For A Girl” and ‘Mama Look” to name a few. BB Seaton, founder of the “Links” label and original member of The Gaylads - one of the most important groups during the Ska and Rock Steady era. BB Seaton explains how the “Links” label came about at a time where artists could not earn fair payment from producers for their recordings. The Gaylads with Ken Boothe, The Melodians and Delroy Wilson joined forces and decided to control their own recordings from the exploitation of the producers. The four artists came together to manage and control the “Links” label to obtain all rights and share their profits. BB Seaton was the backbone of the songwriting and managing the productions/arrangements, whilst the other artists gave all their talent to singing the tracks to their best performance. The tracks recorded for the “Links” label are prime examples of the finest rock steady music to come out of Jamaica! The “Links” label had a short run, and sadly demised after 2 years due to unfortunate circumstances (all is revealed in Brian Keyo’s great liner notes!) This album compiles the “Links” output for the first time. The “Links” album is recommended not only for rock steady collectors but all music lovers.
