The 100 greatest Rocksteady tunes #10

The Kingstonians – Put Down Your Fire (JJ production)

The Kingstonians are easily recognisable due to the lead vocals of Jackie Bernard. Hugely successful in the late 60’s/early 70’s with producer Derrick Harriot the trio formed at the beginning of the Rocksteady era and managed to record a number of fine tunes with Carl “Sir JJ” Johnson before the style changed. All of these are worth checking out but Put Down Your Fire is easily the best.

Put Down Your Fire was originally issued on Doctor Bird in the UK and supposedly on a Jamaican pre-release though this never turns up. It was reissued on a seven inch single on the JJ label in 2011 and should still be fairly easy to pick up.

  • I have been following the top 100 since I came upon the website by accident – everyone’s a scorcher, by the way. But the selection is, as stated, obviously the compilers opinion. It totally amazes me that the vast majority of the chart I’ve never heard. What were the ones like that failed to make the grade?
