Day 47 of 365 Day Jamaican Music Challenge - Errol Scorcher - Dance All Style
The late Errol Archer AKA Errol Scorcher got into the music business by deejaying with several sound systems in the 1970s. His first single "Leggo Mi Hand Babylon" was not a huge success but subsequent singles were met with some acclaim. Scorcher's 1978 tune "Peace Truce," which celebrated the coming-together of rival warring political factions which culminated in the One Love Peace Concert in April of that year. His biggest success came a year later with "Roach In The Corner" and around that time he started his Scorcher record label. Sadly Errol Scorcher died in 2012 at the age of 55 from a ruptured blood vessel in his head. But enough of the background, let's get to today's track... the 47th in our yearlong track-a-day extravaganza! This one is called "Dance All Style" on the Bobby Babylon riddim; produced and arranged by Scorcher himself and released on his Scorch label in 1980. Dig it!
