Deejay Trinity, born February 10, 1954 in Kingston, was a keen follower of soundsystems such as Tippertone, El Paso, Kentone and King Tubby's HiFi, to name but a few. At soundsystem Vee Jay the Dubmaster he started his career and there stayed for some four years. It's not sure whether he recorded his first tune for producer Derrick Harriott ('Owner Fi De Yard') or for Channel One boss JoJo HooKim ('Step Up Yourself'), both tunes released in 1976.

After doing some more tunes for JoJo, he switched to the then in-demand producer Joe Gibbs, where he recorded his most popular tune Three Piece Suite in just one cut! The tune utilized the riddim of Marcia Aitken's updated version of Alton Ellis' Studio One hit I'm Still In Love. The whimsical version by teenage schoolgirl duo, Althea Forrest and Donna Reid -- 'Uptown Top Ranking' -- was virtually ignored when first released; the preferred cut was Trinity's piece on the riddim! A slew of fine singles followed: John Saw Them Coming, 'Starsky and Hutch' and 'Judgement Time'. Joe Gibbs released Trinity's debut LP in 1977, predictably under the title 'Three Piece Suit'.

At the time of this album's original release deejay Trinity was -- alongside fellow deejays Dillinger and Ranking Trevor -- at the height of his powers and popularity. After his stay at Joe Gibbs' he went on recording for Prince Tony Robinson, Alvin Ranglin and he also released some self-produced albums. In 1987 he resurfaced as Junior Brammer - a fine vocalist - and under that moniker he put out two vocal albums.

The 'Three Piece Suit' album has been a sought after piece for a long time. Now Crazy Joe Records in France has re-released this classic deejay album in truly fine style. The digipack format includes two wicked bonus tracks, and comes in the original, amusing sleeve art. The sound quality is excellent, probably they have used the original tapes.

The ten album songs offered here utilize the classic Jamaican riddims which Joe Gibbs used for tons of his productions. Queen Majesty is Rocksteady style, riding the riddim of the same name. Strickly Cash tackles another rocksteady riddim, the Jamaicans 'Ba Ba Boom' tune. 'Heart and Soul' was a hit for Junior Byles, here Trinty lays down a wicked rendition called Render Your Heart. Bob Marley's 'Hypocrites' riddim is used in full effect on John Saw Them Coming. Jacob Miller, by the way, delivered a stunning version on the same riddim for Joe Gibbs as well. Studio One's Coxsone Dodd released several tunes on the 'Rockfort Rock' riddim. Joe Gibbs loved the riddim and Trinity voiced his cut calling it Kingston Two Rock, complete with some bizarre sound effects. Muhammed Ali is cut across the 'Joe Frazier'(!) riddim.

Bob Andy's Song Book is a 1970 album of songs by Jamaican reggae singer and songwriter Bob Andy, recorded between 1966 and 1968.[1] Andy had first found fame as the lead vocalist of The Paragons, but his peak as a solo artist came in the late '60s when he recorded a string of singles for Clement "Coxsone" Dodd's Studio One label. In 1970, these singles were compiled on the Song Book album.[2] Many of the songs on the album have since been covered by a range of artists, including Taj Mahal, who covered "Desperate Lover" on his 1974 Mo' Roots album.[1] Vocal harmony on three tracks on the album are performed by Bunny Wailer and Peter Tosh of The Wailers, and backing comes from Studio One band the Soul Vendors, whose members included Jackie Mittoo and Roland Alphonso.[1] The album was re-issued on CD in 1997, with extended versions of "Desperate Lover" and "Feeling Soul".[1] In the Rough Guides book Reggae: 100 Essential CDs, the album is described as "a masterpiece that belongs in anyone's CD collection - and not just of reggae music",[1] and it has also been described as "one of the era's classic albums".[3] Although the songs on the album have generated considerable royalties, Andy was not financially rewarded as Dodd claimed that, as with much of Andy's songwriting work, he had written the songs himself.

O cantor,compositor,percussionista e produtor jamaicano Lloyd Lovindeer, foi mestre do ´´Pocomania Day´´, em seu elemento no ano passado no concerto National Labour Day Concert em Falmouth, Trelawny. - em Falmouth, Trelawny,Jamaica. Lloyd Lovindeer evoca imediatamente o pensamento do furacão Gilbert em ´´Wild Gilbert´´. Na canção ´´Wild Gilbert´´ Lloyd canta sobre as tragédias que o furacão Gilbert desencadeou em cima da ilha em 1988. Ainda há mais sobre este artista resoluto armado com os poemas líricos espirituosos, mas você tem que escavar para encontrá-lo. Isto porque ele não gosta de falar sobre si mesmo; você apenas tem que fazer as perguntas corretas. É ainda mais difícil do que ele soa. O que é fácil, entretanto, é ficar pensando sobre toda a situação grave e uma canção apropriada de Lovindeer. Recorde o hit dos anos ' 70s ´´Blinking Bus ´´onde deplorou o típico passeio jamaicano nos ônibus. Recorde também´´Babylon Boops´´ e ´´Happiness in the Park´´.Para muitos pode com segurança ser chamado de ´´ um homem para todas as estações´´.Lloyd Lovindeer começou a carreira nos dias da High School quando estava em um grupo de dança chamado 'Fabulous Flames'.Era difícil às vezes, mas todos eles foram dedicados à música assim que fizeram todos os sacrifícios necessários.Quando saíram da escola que começaram a executar profissionalmente. Depois que saíram da escola ganharam o ouro no festival de competição, que foi realizado aproximadamente em 1969/ 1970,e então conseguiram uma oferta para excursionar no Canadá. O grupo acabou aproximadamente em 1980.Em seguida Lloyd trabalhou em um escritório no Canadá em uma companhia de seguros de vida no departamento de exame, mas decidiu voltar para casa por causa do frio e do inverno. Decidiu-se pela carreira solo,e no começo,foi difícil. As canções que queria gravar os produtores não se mostravam interessados nelas porque eram um comentário mais social, o que alguns chamariam de acordo consciente da realidade.Canções escritas como ´´The Blinking Bus´´sobre o sistema de autocarros na Jamaica, e ´´Man Shortage´´,temas que são ainda muito apropriados nos dias de hoje. O cantor gravou dois álbuns ´´Serious Times´´em 1978 e ´´Dance Hall General´´ em 1985,contando com músicos como Peter Ashbourne no baixo e bateria, Derrick Stewart na bateria,Howard Bedasse no baixo,Errol Gayle e Steve Golding na guitarra e percussão,Conroy Cooper no órgão,Courtney Robb no piano,o próprio Lloyd nos vocais e percussão, e os backing vocais de Desi Roots,J.C. Lodge e Mallory Williams.´´Serious Time´´ mostrou temas como Serious Times,Jook Them,Mash It Down,A Tale Of Two Couples,Ride Ride Ride,Manners Up Yourself,No Dreadie,Dem A Cut e Holy Holy Holy Então Lloyd foi o artista número um no Caribe.Lloyd está trabalhando em um álbum agora, ´´The Sounds of Jamaica´´. Ele tem trabalhado nele pelos dois anos passados… Terminou que passou a ser álbum duplo, e é uma coleção do seu material em todos esses anos..
