Laurel Aitken - You Got Me Rockin': the best of the Blue Beat Years 1960-1964

Immediately after landing on British soil in the summer of 1960, Jamaican singing sensation Laurel Aitken was signed by leading independent record company, Melodisc, and over the next few years he provided the ambitious concern with a slew of popular proto-Ska singles that were instrumental in establishing its newly launched Blue Beat subsidiary as the UK’s most recognisable West Indian music imprint.

The very best of these historic and hugely influential recordings are gathered on this compilation - most being made available on CD for the very first time - and with original copies of these highly collectable sides almost impossible to obtain at any price, ‘You Got Me Rockin’’ provides an opportunity to enjoy almost all of Laurel’s Melodisc output for a fraction of the price of an old scratched Blue Beat single.
