    Reggae Feelings

      ‘Reggae Feelings’ is a reminder of the continuing relevance of the dancehall style; rough, raw and rugged they represent the real authentic sound of young Jamaica from over thirty years ago when the youths “forgot their troubles and danced”.

      The producer for the album, deejay turned record producer, Jah Thomas also recorded two songs which were critical to the development of the dancehall style: Triston Palma’s ‘Entertainment’ in 1981, a cut of ‘Heavenless’, and ‘Gunshot’ by Anthony Johnson.Born in Kingston, Jamaica 25th December 1957 Roy Anthony Johnson grew up in the notorious Trench Town ghetto where, inspired by local vocalists, Dennis Brown, Alton Ellis & John Holt, he made his debut recording ‘Free Black Man’ for Bunny ‘Striker’ Lee which remained unreleased. He went on to record with Jo Jo Hookim at Channel One before becoming a member of the Mystic I vocal trio alongside Les Clarke and Balvin Fials, who released the ‘Mysterious’ album, produced by Linval Thompson, on Burning Sounds.

            The Morwells formed in 1973 comprising Eric "Bingy Bunny" Lamont and Maurice "Blacka" Wellington, childhood friends from Kingston's Trenchtown area. The band expanded to a trio in 1974 with the addition of Louis Davis, formerly of The Versatiles alongside Junior Byles. David was a talented arranger and also taught Lamont to play guitar. Wellington began working as a studio engineer and producer for Joe Gibbs in 1976, working on the early recordings by Culture, while Lamont joined The Revolutionaries as rhythm guitarist, although they continued to work as The Morwells. Their new connections gave them access to much of Jamaica's musical talent of the era, and in 1977 they were joined by bassist Errol 'Flabba' Holt. Recorded in 1977 'Crab Race' also features the likes Sly & Robbie, Franklyn Bubbler Waul, Tarzan and Sticky. Quality vocal set.
