Day 238 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - The Kingstonians - Fun Galore

In celebration of the first Saturday of summer we're gonna step back to rocksteady to round out the week with this one by The Kingstonians called "Fun Galore" and it comes from a 1968 7" on the Doctor Bird label!  Produced by J.J. "Sir JJ" Johnson and featuring his house band the Sir JJ All Stars, what absolutely makes this tune is the impassioned and heartfelt vocals of the late great Jackie Bernard.  Pure rocksteady niceness... I hope you dig it as much as I do!
