The Caltone collective of producers, musicians and artists was instrumental in creating some of the most beautiful, but less well known, rock steady music ever made. The rock steady explosion of 1966 provided the first truly seamless Jamaican music and its influence has subsequently proved to be timeless. Its rhythms, bass lines and melodies have been returned to and recycled during each successive phase in reggae's development.

At a time when the rest of the musical world was moving towards overblown and overlong concept albums with an extended cast list Jamaica's musical fraternity were busy stripping their music down to the bare necessities with half a dozen players saying all that had to be said in two and a half minutes on a seven inch single release. The rock steady period lasted for less than two years yet the extent to which it influenced the sound of reggae music is enormous and recognition for its elegant excellence is finally being somewhat belatedly bestowed.

Comprised completely of concentrated creativity these tunes are invariably guaranteed a rapturous reception whenever they are played. Their rarity and desirability amongst collectors means that it would now require an investment of thousands of pounds to own the original seven inch records and Pressure Sounds are proud to be able to present in affordable long playing format, for the first time ever, a selection of some of Phil Pratt's most sought after sides from 1966 to 1968 brimful of musical honesty, lyrical sincerity and unadorned beauty.
