Day 110 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - George Nooks - Love At First Sight
George Nooks got started as a reggae singer in a roundabout sort of way by first performing as deejay Prince Mohammed, most notably serving as the "toaster" on the Joe Gibbs produced Dennis Brown 12" Discomixes "Money In My Pocket" and "How Could I Leave." He went on to record with a few other producers before doing his version of Little Roy's classic "Tribal War" in retaliation to the rash of political violence gripping Jamaican in 1978 and using his real name. Today's track "Love At First Sight" was first released as a 12" on the Calabash label sometime in the early 80s and it is a nice love song to add to this week of the 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge!
