The Rolling Stones selected Ina Disya Time, the signature tune of Jamaican recording artists, the ITALS, as the only reggae song (and the only Jamaican artists) on their Artists Choice CD for Starbucks Coffee. This CD series consists of compilations selected by an artist or band of music that influenced them or that they love.
Lloyd Campbell, composer and producer of the original track for his own Spiderman label, remembers that Keith and Mick bought about 100 copies of the single. Lyricist and lead singer of the Itals, Keith Porter, notes “There was no Itals then, it was just me singing lead, and me and Ronnie (Davis) singing harmony. When the record was about to come out, Lloyd thought we needed a name so he and Brian Thomas of RJR came up with “Itals” because I’m so particular about me food and how it prepared.”
