The Techniques, “You Don’t Care” (1967)

The Techniques, in which Riley was joined by Slim Smith and later Pat Kelly and Tarrus Riley’s father, Jimmy, were best known for rocksteady hits on Duke Reid’s Treasue Isle labelย  like “You Don’t Care,” one of the most heartfelt and beautiful songs from an era filled with such tunes. The riddim recently found some new attention when it was used by Major Lazer for the song “Can’t Stop” featuring Mr. Vegas and Jovi Rockwell.
