V.A. 'Skinhead Hits The Town 1968 – 1969'  LP


The Skinhead sound grew from the music that was coming out of Jamaica around 1968 to 1971 and was adopted by the British Youth. The music seemed tailor made for their sharp look and natty dress style, a style that was heavily influenced by the Jamaican Rude Boy look. The Skinhead movement started around 1968 and by the following year it became the style fashion of English teenagers. The uniform consisted of boots, braces and jeans and the upbeat sound of Reggae seemed to match the style perfectly. The tempo of the music seemed to be picking up around 1966 to 1968 the Rocksteady period, which was when the earlier Ska sound slowed down. The Sound System dances needed a slower bear to swing the night away to, some say to cater for the extreme heatwave that hit Jamaica around that time. Here‘s a bunch of tunes that would have provided a sound track to those heady times, so sit back and enjoy some of the tunes the youths were listening to when the Skinheads hit town...
