The Suedehead Sound of the early 70's followed the skinhead style of the 1968-70 period.
The notable difference could be seen and heard, the sharp jerky upbeat rhythms were slowing down a notch to what we soon be calling that early reggae sound.
the tougher harder look of the rude boy/skinhead style was relaxing a little to almost meet with the less frantic rhythms to a more slowed down groove like sound.
The 'rude Boy Out Of Jail' type lyrics were becoming more conscientious, this was another twist and turn in the ever evolving sound of jamaican music,
But what is sure the artists and producers never disappointed us in this period , so here is a compilation of some tunes that the suedehead crowd were grooving to....
