The release of “Pop A Top” was a significant moment in the transition to early reggae and actually the main inspiration for THE SMALL AXE PEOPLE. That tune had a little bit of everything. Was the intro deejaying or rapping, or an early sample? And what was going on with the bass and drum? And then you had that organ riff !! Lynford Anderson had put so much delay and non-standard sounds on “Pop A Top” that it was truly wild… the concept of the “Version” had been born in reggae. Andy Capp as Lynford Anderson called himself followed “Pop A Top” with “The Law”, another truly inspirational and excellent piece of work. After these first specimen of “Version” further efforts in the same vein followed with Dave & Ansel Collins’ monster hit “Double Barrel” and its follow-up “Monkey Spanner” probably being the most successful.

The 1969 released “Pop A Top” was based on a style of rhythm that was noticeably faster than Rocksteady!
