Description

    In late 1967, Junior Byles formed the vocal group The Versatiles, recording under the supervision of Lee “Scratch” Perry and Joe Gibbs. During this same era, The Versatiles also worked with the producer Niney The Observer, who would be instrumental later in Byles’ career in his affiliation with Nighthawk.

    By the mid-’70s, Junior Byles was a major star in Jamaica poised for international exposure, but he was acquiring a reputation for mental instability. Byles was in and out of sanatoriums during the latter part of the decade, but still managed to make a few great recordings.

    Rasta No Pickpocket was released in 1986 and was his last album release.
