Johnny Osbourne... He got his start working with the group the Sensations and cutting an album for Winston Riley. He also falls into what seems to be a trend with the artists I feature... early works at Studio One before branching out to works with a bunch of other producers.
One thing that sets Johnny Osbourne apart from most of the artists that I feature on my show is that much of his greatest work comes after the 70s had passed when he started working with producer Junjo Lawes. Along with his vocal versions there are many prime Scientist dubs to accompany his vocals. On this show I even (gasp) play Slent Teng for the first time in the history of my show. Osbourne really made his name in the early 80s dancehall period and voiced a lot of popular riddims. To showcase this, I do a nice run of riddims that Osbourne touched towards the end of the show. So, sit back, turn it up and check out the sounds of one Mr Johnny Osbourne.
