The artist also sings 'Rock Steady' to highly praise the new genre. Reissued from the original master tape.

Minstrells - People Get Ready / Hamlins - Everyone Got To Be There

Studio One / Dub Store Records JPN 1968

¥1580 (US$14.35)

Studio One’s golden Rocksteady cover; even hipper and cooler than the original by the Impressions. The original has been known for its excellent lyric and melodies, thanks to the composer Curtis Mayfield, however the Minstrells brought this to a total perfection. Even though the Minstrells left us a small number of recordings, the great vocal group had such a high standard for every single one of them. If you’ve listened to the original press of this tune, you will find the intro has been cut, unfortunately that was the same deal for the master-tape itself. The nice rocksteady by the firm but short-lived Hamlins comes on the other side. Both have been recorded from the original master-tapes.
