      First official reissue of a seminal Treasure Isle album, features some of the greatest Jamaican hits of the 1960s, Three tracks new to CD

      After forming in the mid-Sixties, the Techniques repeatedly proved themselves to be one of the most popular and influential vocal groups in the history of Jamaican music, recording a formidable number of hit singles, many of which are now rightly regarded as classics. The height of their success occurred during the ska and rock steady years, when, led by such luminaries as of Slim Smith, Pat Kelly and Bruce Ruffin, they scored a succession of major hits for Duke Reid’s legendary Treasure Isle Records.

      Around the close of 1968, the producer acknowledged the group’s significant achievements by releasing a now extremely rare long-player showcasing some of their best-known recordings to date, and it is this elusive collection that provides the basis for this collection.

      With an incredible 21 tracks added to the seven featured on the Treasure Isle album, the set highlights the entirety of the Techniques’ recorded output for Reid’s famed label, showcasing both hits and rarities, which include a trio of tracks that have remained unavailable on any format for decades.
