Few artists have had as pervasive an influence on modern-day reggae as the versatile Sugar Minott. Beginning his illustrious career voicing sides for the legendary producer Coxsone Dodd, Minott soon took on various roles beyond the mic, becoming both an in-demand producer and sound system operator. But his greatest contributions lay in his early-‘80s material, where his emotive mix of lovers rock-style vocals and sing-jay chatting set the stage for the emergence of ragga dancehall. DANCEHALL SHOWCASE VOL. 2 is a reissue of a rare 1983 album that originally surfaced on Minott’s own Black Roots.

Sugar Minott was allowed his pick of rhythms from the Brentford Road vaults – and he certainly picked some of the best. One of the classic Studio One albums – worthy of a place in anyone’s collection. The follow up was the Showcase album which collects some early Studio One hits in showcase (extended) style. He continued to work with Studio One until 1979 when he left and created his own label Black Roots which led to the foundation of Youth Promotion. Some of the artists that were recorded at this time were Little John, Barry Brown, Triston Palma and Tony Tuff. In 1984 Sugar Minott took reggae music to Japan. Along with the late great Bob Marley, Sugar was the only one who had done this and helped to promote reggae music to the Japanese. From this he produced the first Japanese reggae star Naki.

Sugar Minott 'Dancehall Showcase' - this is the 1983 Sugar Minott album on Black Roots records. This is Sugar Minott’s self-produced 1983 album on Black Roots records (it was also later re-issued on Wackies in 2008). It’s a great album of classic dancehall vocal cuts with each tracked backed with the dub version. It was released in 1982 on Black Roots Records as a vinyl 10″ record. Volume 1 also had the same cover, with the only difference being it was black and white as opposed to red and white. I love the simplicity of these types of album sleeves, the two-colour print technique adds a ‘home-made’ feeling to the artwork
