Errol Dunkley... An often overshadowed singer who crafted a number of unique soulful tunes over the years. He paid his dues making tracks with the usual suspects, including his debut with Prince Buster and his first hit "You're Gonna Need Me" with Joe Gibbs. On this show, this track is mixed with other versions such as the original from Delroy Wilson at Studio One, and his later remake of the tune which was the first hit for the African Museum label (that he started with Gregory Isaacs.) In addition to Errol Dunkley's work with Bunny Lee and Coxsone Dodd, this show features work he did with producer Jimmy Radway such as his 1972 tune "Black Cinderella." (which leads off the show.) Throughout the remainder of the show we cover a variety of his efforts including some of the work he did with Count Shelly and others..
