J.J. JOHNSON'S SKA and ROCK STEADY PRODUCTIONS 1966 - 1968

Soon after embarking on a career as a record producer in 1966, record retailer and jukebox businessman Karl ‘J.J.’ Johnson, enjoyed a series of significant Jamaican hits with a number of local artists, notably the Rulers and Carl Dawkins.

The hits continued throughout the rock steady era, with the Kingstonians and Eric Donaldson’s West Indians joining Johnson’s small, but popular roster of acts. These and many more feature on this, the very first compilation to focus on J.J. Johnson’s pre-reggae output.

A superb collection on its own or as a companion volume to the recently released “Reggae Power” 2CD anthology, this essential set includes 34 tracks new to CD and many more that have remained unavailable for years.
