The Uniques, featuring Slim Smith, were one of the most popular and enduring vocal harmony groups of the rock steady era. Keith 'Slim' Smith grew up in the West Street area of Kingston and had sang with Winston Riley in The Techniques before leaving to set up The Uniques. This Absolutely Rocksteady set is a mixture of some of the groups' more popular hits and less well known recordings. A fine compilation, showcasing one of Jamaica's greatest ever singers, it is an essential addition to any record collection.

"Slim is an incomparable singer even though he's been dead thirty odd, coming on for forty years. Slim was the nearest thing to Curtis Mayfield and he could also play instruments...look how long Slim Smith dead and you hear his music still. Do you know of another singer who's come up like Slim Smith? You've never had another singer who's made that impact on Jamaican music like Slim Smith." - Bunny ‘Striker' Lee
