5.0 out of 5 stars RRRRRRROCKSTEADY!! March 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
David Hillyard is an utter legend. Aside from playing with, among others, the Slackers, Stubborn All-Stars, Hepcat, etc, he also has his Rocksteady Seven, featuring members of, amongst others, Mephiskapheles, the Skatalites, Skavoovie and the Epitones, plus the legend that is Vic Ruggiero. This is, as you'd expect, prime ska, reggae and, (naturally) rocksteady. It's mostly instrumental, apart from a couple of tracks featuring the guys from Hepcat. You have to hand it to Tim and Hellcat, this is another fine skankin release. Standout track: an awesome cover of the Beatles 'Norwegian Wood'

4.0 out of 5 stars Great CD for all you saxophone/reggae fans December 12, 1999
By Bigdru
Format:Audio CD
I never heard of David Hillyard until just recently, and I have to tell you I really like his style. This is a very good cd. Most of the songs are instrumental, but the two songs that have vocals "Angry Lady" and "The Fool" are excellent. "Angry Lady" is probably one of my new favorite songs. If anybody has any more information about this great saxist, please email me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jamaican Smokin' Jazz August 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
David Hillyard & the Rocksteady 7 is one of those obscure discs that will be a treat to uncover. They formed to create a fusion between Jamaican music, ska & jazz; and the hybrid bubbles with energy and excitement. Two instrumentals capture the imagination. The Beatles' "Norwegian Wood" because it is a familiar tune given a totally new twist as a reggae jazz blast that is excellent. My other favorite is "Skavez" with its Cuban rhythms of piano mixed with a reggae beat. "Hillyard Street" sounds like a soul version of a Ramsey Lewis track. Eddie Ocampo of the reggae band Insteps does some fancy drum work on the driving "Father & Son." The title track is like a Jamaican Duke Ellington. "Ugly Man Blues" has a zany urgency combined with a Peter Gunn like theme. "Playtime" is a mostly instrumental explosion. Seek & you shall find! Enjoy!
