About Playlist

The sound system culture develops in Jamaica as soon as the end of the 1950s: impromptu evenings in the street where artists set up their handmade sound systems to make the crowds dance. Dub was born during these evenings, from live remixes of instrumental pieces, before being brought back into the studio by the technicians from Kingston, King Tubby et Lee Perry, which would make of it a genre in its own right. Dub will afterwards get an impressive echo in Europe through electro producers.

10 Unsung Heroes of Jamaican Reggae

by Smaël Bouaici

Behind the huge international success of figures like Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Shaggy, Jamaica’s local scene has always been a vibrant one. The sound is constantly changing. One star succeeds another. Here, Qobuz explores 10 local Jamaican reggae heroes who have all too often slipped under the radar.

Marcia Griffiths

Early bloomer Marcia Griffiths started recording at the age of 11. Over the years she’s surrounded herself with Bobs: Bob Andy first, forming the duo Bob & Marcia from 1970 to 1974. Together they wrote the hit Young, Gifted and Black (a Nina Simone cover). Rearranged with a string section by the Trojan label, the song was huge in England. In 1974, she met up with another Bob – Bob Marley this time. She joined the I-Threes, The Wailers famous choir, created to make up for Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer’s departures. After Bob Marley died, she went back to performing solo and recorded a strange song in 1982 written by Bunny Wailer: Electric Boogie, which was released in 1990 on her album Carousel. Based on a video of a group of young people dancing the “Electric Slide”, the song became a slightly kitschy classic in the United States where it is apparently still popular at weddings and one of Marcia Griffiths’ biggest sellers. Though reggae fans mostly remember her for her cover of Roberta Flack’s The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, released on her album Play Me Sweet and Nice, which is only made up of covers (Curtis Mayfield, Al Green, Neil Diamond...). A must for fans of the sensational 70s soul reggae period.


Linval Thompson

Linval Thompson was one of those musicians who could do it all. Well, almost. After starting out as a singer for the producer Keith Hudson, he first made a name for himself with the track Kung-Fu Man, recorded by Phil Pratt at Lee Perry’s Black Ark. A singer turned producer, Phil Pratt was a model for Linval Thompson who soon took matters into his own hands by setting up his own label Thompson Sounds. Using King Tubby’s studio (singing for him for free in exchange) he released his first big hit in 1977: Jah Jah Guiding Star. It was produced by a young man named Henry Lawes who would be known as “Junjo” a few years later, the key producer of the early 80s. Together they created Thompson’s classic I Love Marijuana, one of the most popular ganja songs of all time. He also signed with Bunny Lee’s hitmaking label (including Don’t Cut Off Your Dreadlocks and 12 Tribes of Israel) and was eventually swept away by the arrival of digital reggae. Linval Thompson has made his mark on reggae by producing for some of today’s most popular artists, from Freddie McGregor to Johnny Osbourne, Barry Brown and Cornell Campbell.


Hugh Mundell

Jamaica’s prodigy left us too quickly. As a promising competitive runner in his teens, Hugh Mundell first tried his luck at singing at Joe Gibbs’s studio, recording Where Is Natty Dread - a track that was never released. Fortunately for him, Augustus Pablo, the king of melodica, came along and offered him a second chance. A week later, Hugh Mundell recorded his velvety voice over the first tracks that would make up the album Africa Must Be Free By 1983. Released in 1978, it’s an essential record for any self-respecting reggae fan. With his youthful timbre and his innocence-filled lyrics, Hugh Mundell was like a diamond in the rough. His sound was polished by producer Henry “Junjo” Lawes, who had just brought out a series of hits with Barrington Levi, Yellowman and Eek-A-Mouse on his label Volcano. Junjo brought the singer into the studio and put him next to Israel Vibration’s legendary backing band – the Roots Radics. They came out with the album Mundell, another classic with hits like Jacqueline and Rasta Handle, two tracks that were supported by the new “rockers” rhythm invented by Sly Dunbar. At the age of 19, Hugh Mundell became the new star of Kingston – one of the world’s most violent cities. Two years later in 1983 he was killed in his car in front of his protégé Junior Reid’s very own eyes, adding to an all-too-long list of Jamaican geniuses who have died before their time.

 

Jacob Miller

Jacob Miller is the only man who can compete with Bob Marley in Jamaicans’ hearts. As Kingston’s idol number 2, he was one of the few local artists who tried to open up to pop and international music. However, it wasn’t all plain sailing. His first single Love Is A Message released on Studio One in 1968 was a flop, though he returned six years later with Augustus Pablo. In 1974, he brought out the essential album Who Say Jah No Dread, rearranging Love Is a Message and Keep On Knocking which started with the lyrics: “Never can say goodbye to me, Love is a message that I must send to you...” Baby I Love You So, the album’s other hit, was released as a 45 rpm with the dub version King Tubby Meets Rockers Uptown on the B side, a track which was so popular that the record was reprinted with dub on the A side! As the writer of several roots reggae classics (Tenement Yard, Healing of the Nation, Peace Treaty, Standing Firm...), Jacob Miller was also recruited as the lead singer for Inner Circle. Influenced by New York guitarist Joe Ortiz, the group tried fusing reggae with rock and pop, especially on the album Everything Is Great which appeared in 1978. Despite sounding a little kitschy today, the album bears witness to his goals. Gaining fame after starring in the reggae cult film Rockers, his aura spread even further after he participated in the One Love Peace Concert in 1978. At the height of his fame he died in a car accident with his son in 1980 at the age of 27, just one year before Bob Marley's death, leaving Jamaica heartbroken.


Barry Brown 

As a star of Bunny Lee’s label in the 70s alongside names like Johnny Clarke, Cornell Campbell and Linval Thompson, Barry Brown didn’t have a long career but it was a prolific one – 11 albums between 1979 and 1984 and a series of hits. Hits like Step It Up Youthman from the eponymous album, Big Big Pollution and Politician. They were political songs which brought about change alongside Horace Andy (to whom he is often compared for the timbre of his voice). He then recorded for all Kingston’s big studios – Studio One and Channel One with the hit Far East, Prince Jammy (who hadn’t yet become King) on the dancehall record Showcase and even Linval Thompson’s Thompson Sound label… Mired by health and drug problems, his album releases became more sporadic at the end of the 80s, though he did work with the British dub pioneer Jah Shaka, lending his intoxicating voice to soundsystems, as well as on Mafia & Fluxy's the “new Sly & Robbie”. Barry Brown passed away in 2004 but remains one of reggae's favourites to this day.
