Uzziah ’Cool Stick’/‘Sticky’ Thompson has appeared on more records than any other Jamaican artist. He was not only a world class percussionist but also an innovative foundation deejay yet the name of Sticky Thompson will still probably be unfamiliar to anyone apart from reggae music obsessives…

The most revered and respected of Jamaica’s roots vocal groups whose transcendental, ethereal harmonies are beautiful beyond compare; their debut single ‘Satta A Masa Gana’ from 1969 is one of the most versioned songs and rhythms in the history of reggae music and is now a Rastafarian hymn.

A truly mysterious Rastaman who musical flowering in the late 1970 saw only a handful of singles emerge and a brief glimpse of the man himself in the Island film Rockers. He only ever pressed small numbers of copies of each single and hence they were difficult to find, even at the time release, which only added to the mystery of the man.
