This album is amazing - Don's vocals are so pristine and the production is crisp. There are different styles of reggae, including Roots Rock Reggae, Lovers Rock, Dub, Drum and Bass, even some R&B and Gospel thrown in the mix. This is a timeless classic!
Don Carlos (born Euvin Spencer) Legendary Reggae Artist - Born and raised in one of the most deprived regions of Western Kingston, Jamaica, in a district notoriously known as Waterhouse, Don Carlos started his singing career back in 1973, as one of the original members of the roots vocal group Black Uhuru. A year after the trio's ground breaking debut, Don Carlos surprisingly decided to part company in pursuit of a solo career. Having needed at least three years to get the grips of being a soloist, plus developing a knack for song writing and grooming that distinctive, vocal styling it wasn't until May 1981 that Carlos really took the fraternity by storm, courtesy of a heavy, roots and culture flavored show case album titled Suffering for Negus Roots.
Since then he has built and consolidated a staunch following through touring the live circuit, plus 13 solo albums, including Harvest Time, Day to Day Living, Them Never Know a Natty Dread Have Credentials all three issued in 1982, Spread Out 1982, Never Run Away 1984, Just a Passing Glance 1985, Seven Days a Week and Changes in 2010, there has been no turning back.
