Sample text

Both songs were released as singles with their own dub versions on the B-sides. The Jamaican practice of dubbing referred to making a single that had the original song on the A-side and the song without the lyrics on the B-side. This was done so that a DJ at sound system parties could “toast,” or supply his own words, over the lyric-less side to whip the crowd into a frenzy and then turn the record over and play the song in the complete version. The sound systems were giant mobile stereos that were used at parties around the island.

The production was rougher than it had been with Kong, Bob’s vocals were left raw, and the bass and the drum were the lead instruments. The guitar played offbeat chocked-chord chops and the sounds was more reminiscent of the Wailers’ rude boy days. The backing band was Perry’s studio group called the Upsetters (the Upsetter was another of Perry’s nicknames). Two members of this band ended up playing with Bob until he died. The Barrett brothers, Aston (“Family Man”) on bass, and Carlton (“Carlie”) on drums, became the rhythm section for the Wailers.

From Ska to Rock Steady Living in Dodd’s studio gave Bob the opportunity to practice the guitar for hours. It also allowed him to listen to Dodd’s rhythm and blues and soul records. Bob immersed himself in the Motown sound and spent hours listening to the products from the soul studios of the American southeast. As Bob was learning American musical style, the Jamaican ska style was giving way to rock steady. In rock steady, the beat speed is less than half as fast as in ska. Also, the ska horn line is gone and is replaced by keyboards.
