Posted in Channel One, Joseph Hoo Kim, Rocksteady, Sammy Dread with tags , , , on January 25, 2014 by 1960s: Days of Rage

“One of the first British reggae artists to embrace dancehall, Sammy Dread (born: Stewart Farquaharson) has continued to take a hard-edged, roughhouse, approach to reggae. While he scored minor solo hits with ‘Talk It Over’ and ‘Trying To Conquer Natty Dreadlocks’, and an album, Stereophonic, recorded with Philip Frazer in 1980, Dread’s best work has been produced in collaboration with such reggae artists as Sugar Minnot, Black Roots and InI Oneness.”
