2019 release

Digitally remastered and expanded edition.

 

Between the summers of 1966 and '68, the sound of rock steady dominated Jamaica's musical landscape, and throughout this time few producers proved more successful or influential than the island's premiere female music maker, Sonia Pottinger. In recognition of her achievements, Trojan Records gathered a number of her best-known tracks in the style on Put On Your Best Dress, a popular long player released by the company on it's Attack subsidiary in 1990.

Now, almost 30 years later, the LP has been expanded to include the very best of Ms. Pottinger's output from the early rock steady period, thus creating a superb stand-alone collection of high quality Jamaican sounds. Including a multitude of Jamaican hits plus over a dozen tracks new to CD, this superb compilation has been stunningly repackaged with brand new stylish artwork, ensuring it now looks as good as it sounds.
