Steady Social Club was founded in 2019 in Szczecin with an idea of creating first full blown rocksteady album in Poland. 

Love to Jamaican sound if 60s has drawn to the project people who were already doing similiar music for years. Rhythm section originates from former and current members of longest running Polish ska band - Vespa (Maciek Januchowski, Bartek Kościański, Artur Grochowski) and voices belong to Ania Teliczan (cooperating with The Bartenders, Real Cool Sound), representative of Berlin ska-scene Boris Borowski (i.a. Spartan Allstars) and Wioletta Baran (Big Fat Mama). 

Studio session was an analog recording on a glorious 16-track Tascam MS-16 tape machine. Work without computers has waken up different approach to the recording session. Songs were performed in one take from the beginning to the end (no punch ins, copying, cutting). Eventually it turned out that mostly the first takes made it to the final album, hence the title. To stay true to the work methods of Jamaican producers of that era, music was mixed in mono on analog mixing console. Even the album cover is a manual work as it is a lino-cut!
