Freddie McKay & Trinity – In Times of Trouble (1982)

Posted in Ossie Sounds with tags on January 16, 2018 by 1960s: Days of Rage

“Killer tune from the always great combination of two late giants of 70s roots music, Ossie Hibbert as producer and Freddie McKay as vocalist. Originally released on a Live & Love 12-inch in the UK (which also features a deejay piece from Trinity), this was probably cut around the same time as the ‘Creation’ LP that Freddie did for Ossie. Great late ’70s roots music.”

Rod Taylor – Every Little Thing (1979)

“… I remember the drumming because when Ossie told me to come to Channel One I remember it was Sly who played that drums. Normally the drummer for Ossie Hibbert was Santa Davis but this time it was Sly! I remember him smiling with something in his mouth. He always had a match stick in his mouth corner. I remember when I was singing it he was looking at me saying ‘Bad singer! Bad singer!’ The thing is – Sly wanted me to do an album for him but we never did because things got rough and I moved and it never happened. But right now Sly wants me to do something for him. Sly & Robbie I have known for many years and all artists are like family. Because in the business in Jamaica we are one. One family.”
