Techniques Records was part of the Trojan group.  The first two-thirds of Techniques issues were Winston Riley productions; indeed the label took its name from that of Riley's own label in Jamaica.  It put out around thirty singles during the period 1970-74, and enjoyed two unexpected Top Ten successes with Dave & Ansil Collins's, 'Double Barrel' (TE-901; 1970) and 'Monkey Spanner' (TE-914; 1971), the first of which went to No.1 in the charts.   For the most part pressing is likely to have to have been done by Orlake, who were responsible for manufacturing most of Trojan's subsidiary-label records. Distributed By Trojan Records. Winston Riley (14 May 1943 19 January 2012) was a Jamaican singer, songwriter and record producer. Riley was born in Kingston, Jamaica. He formed the band The Techniques in 1962 and recorded material with that group. He formed his own label in 1968 and produced records for several musicians, including Alton and Hortense Ellis and Johnny Osbourne. Riley's own song, "Double Barrel", performed by Dave and Ansell Collins under his own production, was one of the first international reggae hits. On 1 November 2011, Winston was shot in the head at his home in Kingston. According to police, he had been the subject of several earlier attacks. After being in a coma since the shooting, he died on 19 January 2012. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
