kaleidoscopeman Great 2-sider... 'Cool Collie' is an all-time great for me... rocksteady at its best ! Favorite track: Cool Collie.


Originally released in 1966, 'Cool Collie' is sometimes considered as one of the first Rocksteady recordings. With hard hit performance by the backing band, Hopeton Lewis sings to free ganja. On the B-side, Mr. Rocksteady performs a bitter love song in a minor key.
