The legendary Horace Andy, to quote Daddy G of Massive Attack...

They Say All Music Guide

One of the greatest vocalists of ’70s Jamaican reggae, Horace Andy’s vast discography spans over 30 years of flawless invention and genre-shaping, foreshadowing every movement to come out of the country. From his sweet, soul-inflected beginnings as a Studio One troubadour through his ’90s work on the cutting edge of modern dub with Mad Professor and Massive Attack, he remained at the forefront of reggae and dub with each consecutive album. Horace Andy has always been a catalyst for new trends, and in 1978 Pure Rankin was cut for the Clocktower label and subsequently created raggamuffin and a new modern dancehall sound that was unanimously influential on the Jamaican scene. The track “Black Cinderella” was a single that defined this new wave and thus became a classic. Along with Skylarking, this is a crucial Horace Andy recording. Fans of the golden voice are strongly advised to seek it out. – Dean McFarlane
