“People Get Ready” by The Minstrels

An absolutely beautiful cut of rocksteady. Lucky enough to own a copy, though not on 45 (one sold for $2600 a few months ago), but instead on a great Studio One compilation LP titled Studio One Classics (it’s an appropriate title, let me assure you). Curtis Mayfield’s undeniable influence on Jamaican music and rocksteady in particular is showcased with this gem.
