The Techniques

The Techniques were a rocksteady vocal harmony group that formed in Jamaica in 1964. The group included singer Junior Menz (previously of the Paragons) and had hit songs, such as "Little Did You Know," by the next year for Duke Reid's Treasure Isle label. The Techniques found more success in 1967, this time with the single "Love Is Not a Gamble," which was also issued in the U.K. on the young Trojan label. Despite the emergence and increasing popularity of reggae, the following year found vocal groups still going strong, and the Techniques had two more hits that year, one, with their entry in the Jamaican Song Festival, "Run Come Celebrate," and the second, with their take on the signature tune of the Temptations, "My Girl." With their recordings scattered across dozens of compilations, the Heartbeat label's Run Come Celebrate (1993) was a welcome way to own a number of songs by the Techniques on one CD. ~ Joslyn Layne

Slim Smith and John Holt were both in the Techniques before they "went solo", I think.
