Song of the Day: John Holt “Ali Baba”
I threw this record on yesterday and forgot just how good it is. John Holt‘s (who passed away in October, 2014) silky smooth voice over a classic foundation reggae riddim! REWIND SELECTA!
John Holt was one of Jamaica’s sweetest singers and most enduring songwriters. From his childhood domination of talent contests (with 28 subsequent singles) to his time with chart topping rocksteady vocal group The Paragons to his decades-long solo career, he voiced and penned so many of the country’s classics he practically defined the island’s sound.
