Day 189 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Junior Reid - There Will Be No Darkness
Short and sweet today... Junior Reid, born Delroy "Junior" Reid, recorded his first song "Speak The Truth," at the age of thirteen for Hugh Mundell and had it released on Augustus Pablo's Rockers label. By the time the 80s rolled around Reid was in the studio with Sugar Minott, Junjo Lawes and Prince Jammy before starting his own label Jr Productions which even released three of the first tunes by Black Uhuru... the band in which Junior Reid's name would almost become synonymous. Today's tune is called "There Will Be No Darkness," which comes from the album Boom Shack A Lack, produced by Prince Jammy and released on Greensleeves in 1985. Enjoy, and happy Saturday!
