Sugar Minott, "Oh Mr. D.C."
KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are back at Studio One, 13 Brentford Road, Kingston, for Sugar Minott's "Oh Mr D.C.", recorded by Clement "Sir Coxone" Dodd and mixed by Scientist. First released as a 45 in 1977...
Kingston born in 1956 as Lincoln Barrington MInott, Sugar's first serious involvement with music was as a sound system selector, and he ran his own Gathering Of Youth 'sound' while still a young teenager. In 1969, he joined The African Brothers vocal trio, but by 1974 went solo at Studio One, where his recordings went on to be a massive influence on the Dancehall scene to come.
Sadly, Sugar Minott left us in 2010 aged 54, from some heart related issues." KV
