PostSubject: BB Seaton & The Gaylads 45s   Thu Oct 09, 2008 1:52 am

BB Seaton & The Gaylads easily make my Top 10 reggae artists, along with posibly more obvious choices much as Bob Marley & The Wailers, The Heptones, Ken Boothe, Dennis Brown, Johnny Osbourne, Cornell Campbell, Alton Ellis, John Holt, Slim Smith and Johnny Clarke. Still in fine voice after almost 50 years in the business, Bibby (as he likes to be called) is a generous and friendly gentleman to do business with as well.



The Gaylads were a popular rocksteady vocal trio active in Jamaica between 1963 and 1973. The group, formed in Kingston, originally consisted of singers Harris "B.B." Seaton, Winston Delano Stewart and Maurice Roberts; Seaton and Stewart had previously been successful as the duo Winston & Bibby. There would be several line-up changes throughout The Gaylads' ten year history, with Maurice Roberts remaining the only constant member. Besides recording several hit records, The Gaylads also backed many influential musicians (including Ken Boothe) on recordings.

Roberts, the lone remaining original member, selected brothers Randell and Hopeton Thaxter to carry on the Gaylads name; the new lineup never matched the success of its predecessor, however, and after releasing the album Love and Understanding as the Gayladds, Roberts dropped any reference to the moniker whatsoever and rechristened the trio the Psalms, landing as backing vocalists for Bunny Wailer. The founding duo of Seaton and Stewart reformed for the first time in over two decades for an appearance at the 1991 Studio One concert, and two years later Roberts joined them for a performance at the Rocksteady Reunion in Kingston. Seaton -- who began his solo career in 1973 with the album Thin Line Between Love and Hate and enjoyed success throughout the years to follow -- subsequently relocated to London to helm his revived Soul Beat imprint.

Some of their hits included one of the first singles encouraging repatriation - "Africa (We Want To Go)" (for Coxsone Dodd at Studio One), "It's Hard To Confess" (for Sonia Pottinger) and "My Jamaican Girl" (for Leslie Kong / Beverley's).

BB Seaton still performs excellently. I am lucky enough to have seen him a couple of times and I recommend you catch him if you can. He still operated Soul Beat Records out of London and alot of the songs on these mixes can be bought from his website on CD or 45. Check him out (if you ask nicely he might sign a 45 for you!)
