A new compilation called Rocksteady Got Soul has just been released, cherry-picking classics and rarities from what Grant considers one of the most soulful strands of early Jamaican music.

We'll hear two key Alton Ellis/ Jackie Mittoo tracks from that today, alongside fresh business from New Brighton's Blair Parkes and Wellington jazz hombre, Lucien Johnson.
