my #1 Jamaican vocalist Ken Boothe aka 'Mr Rocksteady' has been recording ‘burial’ tunes since first appearing on Jamaica's burgeoning music scene as a child in the late 50's. Originally part of a duo with his Denham Town neighbour and friend Stranger Cole he recorded at the birth of the Ska for legendary producer Coxsone Dodd with top ranking tunes such as Worlds Fair, Artibella, I am a Fool and Crying Over You, before effortlessy making the transition to Rocksteady with more boss cuts for Studio 1 such as I Don't Want To See You Cry, Leave Me Crying and When I Fall In Love before following up with sublime pieces of Reggae and even Dancehall.
Ken Boothe has dropped sonic bombs with producers such as Leslie Kong, Phil Pratt, Keith Hudson, Bunny Lee, Prince Jammy, Jack Ruby and Tappa Zukie, during a career that stretches over 50 years and is one of the FEW remaining foundation artists to still be touring and recording.
