  • 2. Jackie Mittoo – Tropic Island

Numerous Jamaican artists have covered this massive hit by the Impressions, but this cut must surely rank as one of the best. The Minstrels’ sweet vocal inducements to ride the Rock Steady train leave the listener with the distinct feeling that it really will take them to a land of happiness. Tropic Island on the b-side sees Jackie Mittoo’s tropical organ themes blend perfectly with the guitar riff to create a tuff Studio One-style Rock Steady rhythm. Listen out for the superb cameo by Vinnie’s trombone.
