Sad news, but he must have had a decent innings.

RIP - another under-recorded and unsung hero of Jamaican music.

I particularly like his 'Lick It Forward' - a re-lick (no pun intended) of his earlier 'Lick It Back':

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLPIfCUAIUQ

I guess I must have heard him first on 'Here I Come Again', which was a Tesco 10p'er bought on the strength of the Little Roy side.

Damn. One of my favourites, too. His vocals are so relaxing, and breezy, like sitting under a palm tree, on a Jamaican beach, at sunrise, or sunset......

Marc's spot on.....An un-sung Jamaican hero, and under-recorded.

Some goodies, already posted.....These are some more, goodies:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P8bG5YpJLE
"It's Been So Long"

Cool Rocksteady Soul.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmahdJBlEhg
"Lick It Back"

My favourite, by the legend.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDiGF8YhUvU
"Here I Come Again"

Nice Rocksteady-Reggae....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgkMMihFtQw
"What Have I Done"

Ska. But, notice the tempo changing.....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0SkIegfV4I
"A Lover's Question"

Does Clyde's version, justice, I think.....Glad to see it, on YT.



RIP, Winston.

Crying or Very Sad

Yes, I really like that and bought the single from one of MdEK's (RIP) lists...or possibly from Athers.

I think the latest tune I have by him.

R I P Winston Samuel's. We used to call him Saddle Head just like Delroy Wilson. Winston was a withfield town man come from off the Waltham park Road like myself. Kingston 13. Winston made some nice Ska tunes back in the days like You are the one I need. Be prepared. And many more. Like a lot of Artist the music industry was not treating Him right so He migrated to The Usa and we did not hear much about Him again. His style was unique. I used to love is music he had a unique voice. Another one of our unsung Heros. Rest in Eternal Peace my Brother. Condolences to family and friends. Winston Samuel's who past away yesterday. Gone But won't be forgotten by many.
