DJ Algoriddim, Clancy Eccles, Dynamite, Dynamites, Eccles All Stars and more.
Clancy Eccles started off his musical career as a teen, working the north coast hotel scene. He got his break after performing in a talent show put on by Coxsone Dodd in 1959. He went on to record a variety of tunes with Dodd and eventually started a talent show of his own in 1962. He went on recording for a number of years, before taking a two year break from music on 1965. When he returned to music in 1967 he started producing and called his studio band the Dynamites, who were the same group o f musicians referred to as the Crystalites when working with producer Derrick Harriot. Clancy went on to help Lee Perry get his start in 1968 when Perry broke off from Dodd, and also assisted Niney produce his first hit in 1971.
For this show, I make a run through a variety of his tunes, focusing more on the tracks he produced.
