The Slickers

The Slickers has been played on NTS in shows including Sameed, featured first on 27 January 2014. Songs played include Johnny (Too) Bad.

The Slickers were a Jamaican rocksteady and reggae group in the late 60's and early 70's, best known for the track Johnny Too Bad, which appeared on the soundtrack to The Harder They Come starring reggae legend Jimmy Cliff.
