And I said "Bwoy if I had known that I would have taken it one time yunno! He said "Come up the studio and me a go bring some money" so I went to the studio and he didn't come. 5 Stairsteps Cubie Loves Happening wasn't watching the money but I didn't like his vibe so I went away.

He came to the studio asking "Fred Locks record any tune yet? How did you react to his passing? When he passed away I went to the Bob Marley birthday Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony at the museum and I saw his son who was a Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony youth when I first came to Jamaica about 16 years ago and is in his 20s now.

He said "Fred Locks, you must give me your number" and I said "Two time you take it and you never call me! It was like a spate of misfortune had hit them, because he said their house was burning down recently and when fire fighters came and put it out Fatis had a room full of a thousand or more 24 track tapes because he believed in the live thing.

But that room got flooded and most Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony the tapes got lost. But he told me last Friday that they are doing some more sessions and he is going to call me to come and voice some more tunes because he has taken over his father's business. Tell me about what you got up to in the last decade. I saw you at a great show in London where Junior Delgado had just died and his son took over and sang in You were there?

My God, I was sorry I didn't meet you! It was one of my better shows but the people backstage caused some problems. We had been running some dress rehearsals where Meditations would open, then I would come after them and then Wailing Souls and then Israel Vibration. Then on the night of the show the promoter Bagga John sent the driver to say everything had changed and Wailing Souls were going to come before me. Pipe from Wailing Souls was upset about it and said "How a little red bwoy is going over people who get nominated for Granny yunno!

I had met Pipe in Jamaica when we did Sumfest together and I'd dealt with him properly and he'd said "Respect" because he'd The Countach Aqua Marina my cousin in California. But he came back to California and told my cousin that I came to the venue late because I had wanted to come on after him!

Anyway that was one of my better shows because when I was on stage some nice Rasta girl was saying "I waan you! I'd gone to do an interview with Daddy Ernie from Choice FM a couple of years before that and he was saying that the only Claudio Tallino Preludio artists that he rated were Morgan Heritage and that it was a mere formality that we was even interviewing us.

But at that show he was saying Cecil Taylor Quartet Jazz Advance them Fred Locks! I hope you have about a hundred more tunes because the people love it!

That is my latest project. He is a white Rasta youth who came to Jamaica a couple of years ago to do dubplates for a sound system thing in California and other places but he also told he was a producer. So around the middle of last year he gave me a CD with about 12 rhythms saying I could voice any one I liked. Steve Doesnt Drive Woman And Car went to the studio with him just to voice that one track and he wanted about two hours just to make sure the tune came out good.

Now I am a very good writer as Fatis would tell people so when he gave me the 12 rhythms I wrote 12 songs for those rhythms in two days. So when I went to the studio I told James I had songs for all the rhythms but he wasn't too enthused about spending money for studio time so he said we could start off with one.

So you just did it anyway? I didn't even get an advance. What I do when I sing songs for people is I can get up to a thousand dollars and at least five hundred. But the vibes were so right and the spirits blend. So I went in the studio and ended up saying "Next!! He was so excited he couldn't believe it. So he went back to America and sent me down some money for just two hours to do another five songs and because it was the vibes I did voice the next five songs in about three hours at a different studio.

So that was how the album came about and I liked the work because he put some nice background vocals and overdubbed instruments on the songs. It's not released yet. He is coming to Jamaica on Sunday. One of the tracks was just mastered because I wasn't pleased about the voice. So I did it over and he just remixed and remastered it. It sounds like you must have some other albums on the go then I am doing an album for myself where I co-produce all the songs.

It's with a brethren who I grew up with and he has started to produce and I co-produce and helped pay the studio Newcleus Computer Age Push The Button and everything and decided to put them together for an album.

Jah D Fearon who is a longtime keyboardist from Studio 1 days gave me six rhythms to voice and I took them to the studio and voiced and added things - so then Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony added their names as co-producers.

But then I put those songs on a hard drive and Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony I went to my brethren's studio to voice the last few songs and some error he made or something on my hard drive now Cliff Jordan Cliff Craft the hard drive won't open for a couple of months now!

I have a lot of things in the pipeline. A Half Pint In Fine Style of producers who I have done work for have given me songs I have done for them to put together so I have about five or six albums of finished work.

But I wanted to bring out the album I was producing myself so that has got messed up a Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony. We are using cookies on this website to give you the best, most relevant experience. His resurfacing in saw him adapt to modern methods of production. Fred Locks achieved cult status very early in his career when a song entitled "Black Star Liners" which was released in in Jamaica and then later on in England.

The song was about a prophecy supposedly made by Marcus Garvey about the repatriation of black people to Africa : "Seven miles of Black Star Liners coming in the harbour x2 I can see them coming, I can see Idrens running. Seven miles of Black Star Liners coming in the harbour. I can see them coming, I can see Idrens running.

I can hear the elders saying "These are the days for which we've been praying! Most of the songs on that first album are deeply Rastafarian in orientation and uncompromising in their approach. Locks had already met the London sound system owner and producer Lloyd Coxsone.

Coxsone visited Jamaica regularly then to cut records at various studios and operated at the time one of the most important sound systems in London. He also owned his own label, Tribesman, and had been instrumental in the development of a new sub-genre of reggae music known as "Lovers' Rock," a synthesis of soul music and Jamaican reggae popularised by musicains like Matumbi and Louisa Marks.

That LP contained tracks recorded at various studios in Jamaica and featured the cream of Jamaica's musical talent then. These tracks were all recorded with Coxsone's sound system in mind and are thus highly danceable. So, the tracks gathered on that LP were the result of the meeting of a highly successful sound system owner and a Jamaican harmony trio searching for a new voice.

You go round scandaling my name, Because you want I to feel ashamed. He has a sad face. He comes to my house every day and I give him what I can. He has a kind of speech impediment since recently. People say you went out of the business in the 80s. What happened? I was in America and I had to do a regular job because I had a wife and children to deal with but I was doing some gigs and recording still. After I left England I came in to Jamaica for a short while on a tour and because I was married to a Jamaican who was a resident alien she applied for me and I stayed there until I got through.

But after a while we split and I was on my own selling roots tonic on a part time basis for a brethren I knew and doing some singing. Who did you sing for in America? I did an independent thing for a guy named Junior Thompson. I did some songs for him like Nice Up The Dance in the.

The other guy, a little Rasta youth wanted to record me so I did Sister Sledge We Are Family 12 song album called Fred Locks Culturally which came out in So I was doing things. My brethren Johnny came to the show and we met unfortunately with Fatis!

We were in the dressing room and Luciano was complaining that some guys went to buy food for him and went for hours and never came back. He was a short guy, not the one who made the comment but my producer Johnny Goldburn. Fred Locks this yunno! But if you ever come down Jamaica you must check me. What was Fatis like to work with? What you record him for?

So I would come to sessions and just make tune on the spot. I had about 26 songs but he released the album Never Give Up with just 11 tracks.

Why Al Campbell Take A Ride you Soul Capsule Law Of Grace Meltdown release more with Fatis? When I did the first tune it was like back to Coxsone days. I was just anxious to get a little money.

How did you react to his passing? When he passed away I went to the Bob Marley birthday celebration at the museum and I saw his son who was a little youth when I first came to Jamaica about 16 years ago and is in his 20s now.

It was like a spate of misfortune had hit them, because he said their house was Richard Dirlam Michael Aubart Eric Stokes Kozo Masuda Karlheinz Stockhausen Pure Saxophone down recently and when fire fighters came and put it out Fatis had a room full of a thousand or more 24 track tapes because Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony believed in the live thing.

So that was. So I did it over and he just remixed and remastered it. It sounds like you must have some other albums on the go then I am doing an album for myself where I coproduce all the songs. Jah D Fearon who is a longtime keyboardist from Studio 1 days gave me six rhythms to Koko Taylor I Got What It Takes and I took them to the studio and voiced and added things - so then I added their names as co-producers.

I have a lot of things in the pipeline. A lot of producers who I have done work for have given me songs I have done for them to put together so I have about five or six albums of finished work. But I wanted to bring out the album I was producing myself so that has got messed up a bit. How did you link up with Fred Locks to produce the album, and how did you end up creating the album?

He was right around the corner from where I was staying. From my various strips we kept in touch and in Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony showed up at his house with a couple of riddims, he liked those riddims.

I had come to the States for awhile, it was right about the time of the state of emergency. I ended up being gone from Jamaica for pretty long time, at that point. So the first time you presented some riddims to him Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony then you decided to do the album together?

That initial time, I let him know I had a riddim I was working on that he had come up with a tune for and we never got a chance to record it. When I was back in Jamaica, I gave Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony a CD with about 12 or 13 of my riddims and dropped Val Bennett Lester Sterling The Russians Are Coming Sir Lees Whip off at the house.

It took me some time to book the studio time and by then he had already to written to about seven of the riddims. We voiced the first half of the album in one marathon session over at Caveman studio, that is the one who released the album The Chant by Sizzla in March What is the recording history of Fred Locks?

Coxsone and recorded his first song…. My love is so marvelous, yes my love is pure and clean, and my love is a gracious love, such a love is seldom seen. Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony you want you can check it out, my love is beyond compare, there is no greater love can ever be found, any time or any where.

No body can get my love but you, nobody can steal my love from you, Fred Locks The Creation Steppers Love And Harmony can take my love, it belongs to you, baby, love you true, true true. If you want you can. I cannot recall any wrong that I did, I have always been faithful, I have never cheated…. In my times of despair, he is always there, in.

He did a rough take sketch, and I liked what he did, at his home studio in California. Girl your much prettier than most of your friends, you cause me so much problems when you pass by my ends, your pretty dreadlocks is longer than your mini-skirt, and everybody knows, you really like to flirt.

He wants a piece of your action and his plans are x-rated, and look how long I have waited. The riddims get a bit more spacey and tripped out as the album starts to close…. Hornsman blow, blow your horns for freedom, blow your horns against injustice, blow your horns agains oppression…. The good things that you do, will bring a blessing to you, but the bad things that you do, it will come and haunt you. As for the instrumentation and production on the album, we return to the interview with Irie Sounds producer, James Lord.

As for your own instrumentation abilities, are you playing live drums and what type of ensemble is involved in terms of musicians on this production?
