The Maytals created a music, “there was nothing else like it on earth”, that could only have been created by Jamaicans in Jamaica; other vocalists and vocal groups often attempted to sound like their American counterparts but The Maytals paved the way for Jamaican singers to sound like Jamaicans.

Date Updated: Jul 11, 2018
A soulful singer whose plaintive delivery was rarely equalled; why Freddie McKay never saw the success he so rightly deserved from almost two decades of recording remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of reggae music.

A true original, although his style came steeped in the traditions established by pioneers such as U Roy and Big Youth, the Lone Ranger was one of the first deejays to build a bridge between the roots and culture approach of the seventies and the full on dance hall deejay attack of the eighties.

Heptones

Text by Harry Hawks
Date Updated: Apr 25, 2018
Anyone with more than just a passing interest in rock steady and reggae knows and loves the music of The Heptones. Their near faultless body of work gives no indication as to why crossover success managed to elude one of the greatest ever Jamaican harmony trios

King Stitt

Text by Harry Hawks
Date Updated: Feb 28, 2018
The series of singles that King Stitt, the first ever deejay superstar, made with Clancy Eccles were the first where the deejay received a proper credit on record. They demonstrated how lyrical interjections and interruptions from a ‘toaster’ could build up as much excitement on record as they did in a dance… and the floodgates were now open.

Meditations

Text by Jeremy Collingwood
Date Updated: Jan 31, 2018
A fine vocal trio consisting of Ansel Cridland, Winston Watson and one time member of the Righteous Flames, Danny Clarke. It was Clarke who founded the group in 1975 and over the next decade they cut themselves a niche as a classic Jamaican roots vocal harmony group – whose sales never reflected their standing in the reggae world.
