Robert Livingstone Thompson, also known as Dandy Livingstone, was born in Kingston, Jamaica. He moved to United Kingdom at the aged of 15 and by 1964 was releasing a torrent of singles on labels such as Carnival, Blue Beat and Trojan.
You might not know who he is but you might know the song “Rudy, A Message To You” written by Dandy in 1967 and covered by The Specials in 1979. “I’m Your Puppet” is a cover of a song by James & Bobby Purify. Personally I think everything sounds better in rocksteady form. I recently used this track in a Dub track I made called “In A Way.” Check out the original and the track I used it in below.
