The Techniques, “Queen Majesty” (1967)

The Techniques were the first to voice this foundation riddim laid down by Tommy McCook and the Supersonic Band, and used more recently for new classics like Sizzla’s “Just One of Those Days.” “Queen Majesty” itself was actually a cover of an R&B song called “Minstrel and Queen” by Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions.
