Various Artists - Rocksteady People (JDI's Supreme 13 Hits)
Lovely, ultra slow-motion rocksteady, with a few New Orleans and mento flavours thrown in the pot.
"Rockashacka are very proud to announce the first compilation of JDI material, a rare label treasured by collectors from all four corners of the world. The label ran for almost 3 years between 1965 to 1967 during the hot Ska and Rock Steady period. JDI productions had a unique hi-fashion style, different from the likes of Studio One and Prince Buster productions. The two JDI bands - The Diamonds and Los Caballeros were house residents at the Johnson’s Drive Inn premises owned by the man himself Mr Copley Johnson with tip top singers like Lloyd Williams and Roy Panton on vocal duties. When you listen to the JDI releases, you can actually feel the vibes of the JDI night club at that present time! The JDI band members included a young Karl “cannonball” Bryan, Sammy Ismay, Freddie Butler (brother of well know keyboardist Leslie Butler) and Lloyd Delpratt. Mr Brian Keyo provides great liner notes once again!"
