Merritone / Dub Store Records JPN 1966

N/A

'This Music Got Soul' is one of the earliest works by Mr. Rocksteady aka Hopeton Lewis. Interestingly, some would even say 'This Music Got Soul' is his debut single.

The artist also sings 'Rock Steady' to highly praise the new genre. Reissued from the original master tape.
