Duke Reid was one of the founding fathers of the Jamaican music business, perhaps second in importance only to his chief rival, Clement "Coxsone" Dodd, both as a record producer and entrepreneur.
It was as a dancehall DJ that Reid first created his image; he openly carried weapons, often wore a cape, and sometimes entered his gigs by having his associates carry him in.
Reid was often charged with more unscrupulous tactics; gangs of toughs (or "dancehall crashers") would sometimes start trouble at his competitors' dances, hoping to get the party shut down by police (and maybe smash some equipment in the process).

 Duke Reid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By the `70s, the Rastafarian influenced roots and culture reggae was becoming more prevalent, and Reid was noticeably less sure-footed (famously he turned down the chance to record The Wailers).

Cancer was diagnosed and Reid decided to sell the Treasure Isle label to Sonia Pottinger, widow of his friend Lenford `Lennie the King` Pottinger, and already a record company owner in her own right.

 CHAPTER SIX: DUB
His long relationship with Duke enabled Ruddy to feature an unrivalled selection of music recorded at Duke Reid's Treasure Isle studio on Bond Street by singers such as Alton Ellis and Phyllis Dillon, as well as legendary vocal-harmony groups the Techniques, the Melodians and, most significantly for the history of dub, the Paragons.
By 1968, Reid was releasing tunes like "Black Power", which used the rhythm track of the Silvertones, rocksteady cover of "In the Midnight Hour", with Winston Wright's keyboard replacing the group.
Reid soon issued other instrumentals using backing tracks from vocal hits - saxman Tommy McCook's "My Best Dress" and organist Neville Hinds' "Sunday Gravy" (treatments, respectively, of the Paragons' "My Best Girl" and Alton Ellis's "Sunday Coming") being good examples of the sort of material that was given a general release (see p.63).

Around this time entrepreneurial Jamaicans, including Duke Reid and Coxsone Dodd, began mounting massive speakers onto the backs of trucks to form portable soundsystems that would roll into empty lots and play records for dancers to shake their hips to.
This was one of the earliest incarnations of the block parties that would spawn hip hop twenty years later, but in Jamaica getting your hands on fresh records meant importing them from the States or getting a band into the studio.

Along with Clement Dodd, Duke Reid was one of Jamaica's most innovative and busy producers in the '60s.
His sweet, heavy sound left its mark on a long list of ska, rock steady, and early reggae sides, all performed by many of the big names from the golden era in Jamaican music.
The U.S. soul, Impressions-inspired sound of harmony groups like the Paragons, Jamaicans, and Techniques is featured on the first half of the disc with Alton Ellis' soulful version of "Willow Tree" and Justin Hinds and the Dominoes' late ska classic "Carry Go Bring Home," providing nice contrast.

By 1958, however, the supply of records that were musically satisfying and suitably danceable was drying up as tastes in the USA changed and sundry Jimmies and Bobbies began taking over the airwaves.
Speaking of bobbies brings us back to Duke Reid, the burly ex-policeman who was then, as 'King of Sounds and Blues', top of the sound system heap.
A few producers, notably the conservative Duke Reid, were still making records in the style, but the nation demanded a new sound to accompany the new era of independence, and Ska, which we hear developing in some of these 50 tracks, carried the swing for the next four years.
