Traditional Cali Sounds: THE STEADY 45s “Trouble In Paradise” LP / THE EXPANDERS “Old Time Something Come Again” LP (JUMP112LP) – last copies!

We are proud to finally have vinyl from the 7 piece rocksteady and traditional ska sensations form Los Angeles THE STEADY 45s! Beautiful harmonies, captivating rhythms and that driving Jamaican beat, the influences are strong: Desmond Dekker, Justin Hinds, Jackie Opel, Hepcat, Derrick Harriot, The Ethiopians, The Gaylads, The Techniques, The Heptones, The Wailers, Alton Ellis, Prince Buster,  Skatalites, Delroy Wilson, The Impressions, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, Studio 1, Treasure Isle the list goes on! A few years back John Butcher of The Expanders joined the Steady 45s as the new lead singer, so we figured we should remind you about the gem we released years and years ago – these are our LAST COPIES on MINT GREEN vinyl. Southern California’s reggae giants released this album as a free digital download earlier this year, full of crucial old-school Jamaican tunes that they have performed over the years. We loved it SO much we asked to release it on vinyl!! “Old Time Something Come Again” pays homage to rockers style reggae from the 1970s – features tunes by The Ethiopians, Culture, Justin Hinds, Peter Tosh and more! The album was dedicated Leonard “The Ethiopian” Dillon and all the Jamaican Singers and Players who provided the inspiration. Taking their name from classic reggae studio bands like The Observers, The Aggrovators and The Upsetters, The Expanders aim to carry on the tradition of Los Angeles reggae/ska bands who strive for a vintage JA-style sound…but focus more on “country roots,” a style of reggae played by The Ethiopians and The Mighty Diamonds, as well as on early 80’s rub-a-dub styles like that of The Roots Radics. LAST COPIES on MINT GREEN.
