As one of Jamaica's leading record producers Arthur 'Duke' Reid embraced the new reggae sound. London- based reggae giant Trojan Records brought together a dozen of his finest works under the title “Greater Jamaica Moonwalk Reggae”.
The development of the rock steady sound, late in 1966, enabled a new generation of young, dynamic music makers to make a mark upon Jamaica's recording industry and of these, few proved more successful or influential than Clancy Eccles. In 1969 year he scored his biggest hit, the rambunctious 'Fattie Fattie', which sold in huge amounts both at home and the UK.
The Viceroys (also known as The Voiceroys, The Interns, The Inturns, The Brothers, and The Hot Tops) are a reggae vocal group founded in 1966. Their first album released as the Viceroys was the Linval Thompson production We Must Unite, released in 1982 by Trojan Records.
