First time compilation rock steady label Links. Jamaica's rare rock steady label Links was running for almost 2 years between 1967 to 1968. The Links label is very sought after with collectors & selectors. The tracks recorded for this label are prime examples of the finest rock steady music to come out of Jamaica! The Links label had a short run, and sadly demised after 2 years due to unfortunate circumstances (all is revealed in Brian Keyo's great liner notes!)
