Jamaican Recordings LP 17 review

Don Carlos pocesses one of reggae’s most distinctive voices. His vocal mannerisms being instantly recognisable over a tune. Yet he remains one of Jamaica’s best kept secrets. We look back to some of his finest moments that set the tone for his popularity that was to follow in the Dancehall period of Reggae. Born Don McCarlos, in the notorious Waterhouse district of Kingston, Jamaica. He began his singing career in 1973, where alongside Garth Dennis and Derrick ‘Ducky’ Simpson he formed what would become one of reggae’s foremost contenders, Black Uhuru. Their first recording would be a version of Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Romancing to the Folk Song’. Released under the name Uhuru [ the Swahili word for Freedom ] on the Top Cat label. It saw limited underground success.This would lead to a split in the ranks seeing Dennis leaving, to join The Wailing Souls, and Don going solo under his now trimmed down monicker of Don Carlos. After working with various producers and honing his sound, the late 70’s would see his arrival at the door of producer Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee. Work began matching Don’s collection of tunes against some of Bunny’s finest rhythms.
