"SUGAR MINOTT THE VERSATILE" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, September 14 2009 - Not only is he said to be the founding father of Rub a Dub and with that of Dancehall Music, his extremely soulful voice has been recorded over too many Lover's Rock tunes to count.
In the same time, Sugar Minott's first self-produced albums were loaded with Roots Rockers music as the foundation of a lot of Conscious lyrics.
His self-founded Youth Promotion Sound System has provided the Reggae Community with a multitude of singers and deejay's, and then we don't even mention all his productional work for yet others.
Sugar Minott is indeed one very versatile individual in Reggae Music, and he's been so for decades now.
Oh yes, I didn't even mention Sugar's own Black Roots label.
But then, you can hear for yourself today. Check out Junior Roots' Natty Dread Time!
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
