Featured Artists - The Gaylads (Part One)

This vocal trio from Jamaica began recording ska material in 1963, but their best work is a series of outstanding rocksteady tunes cut at the end of the 60s for Coxsone Dodd's Studio One and Sonia Pottinger's Gayfeet. Delano Stewart, BB Seaton and Maurice Roberts also backed other artists with their delicate and soulful harmonies and if you haven't heard them before then pull up a chair. OK, if you have, sit down anyway and enjoy this post and the others to follow this month.
