Clancy Eccles - Freedom The Anthology



Clancy Eccles - Libertad: The Anthologia 1967-1973. Clancy Eccles fue uno de los principales productores de rocksteady, y pronto se convirtió en el reggae. Además de ser un cantante y productor consumado, Eccles tenía convicciones políticas profundas en el poder curativo del socialismo, y practicó lo que predicaba, prestando su voz a la causa, tanto político como interpersonal. Eccles ayudó Lee "Scratch" Perry establer su estudio e hizo todo lo que pudo para ayudar a sus compañeros músicos jamaicanos ganan prominencia durante los años 70. Parece ser que también acuñó el término "Reggae" del término del argot "streggae", que se refería a una señora de fácil reputación. Esta antología es de excelencia recopilando sus mejores temas y colaboraciones de varias agrupaciones en la época dorada de Jamaica.
 Clancy Eccles - Freedom: The Anthology 1967-73. Clancy Eccles was one of the major producers of rocksteady, the Jamaican music style that built on ska and soon developed into reggae. Besides being an accomplished singer and producer, Eccles had deep political beliefs in the healing power of socialism, and he practiced what he preached, lending his voice to the cause, both political and interpersonal. Eccles helped Lee "Scratch" Perry set up his studio and did everything he could to help his fellow Jamaican musicians gain prominence during the 70s. He also apparently coined the term "reggae" from the slang term "streggae," which referred to a lady of easy reputation. This anthology, released by the amazing Trojan label, is uniformly excellent.

Al lado de Joe Gibbs dio lugar a una serie de éxitos como No me toques  (Dont Touch Me) , y Dios bendice a tus  hijos (God Bless The Children). Thomas y Gibbs también abarcaron una serie de canciones  R&B exitosas, qué incluía Tyrone Davis.

Thomas objetó el bajo perfil de la emisora ​​estatal  de lo que estaba dando al reggae y en una entrevista con Carl Gayle descargó su frustración comparando el juego del reggae en la radio como algo similar como el uso de una prostituta.

En 1973 Thomas estaba siendo producido por Dandy Livingstone liberaron   un tercer álbum llamado Imágenes de Usted  (Images of You ) Incluyeron  una versión de su anterior éxito en Jamaica "Have a Little Faith"  escrito por -Gibbs otro éxito fue "Doing the  Moonwalk".

Thomas y su  estilo de pop-reggae había perdido popularidad a finales de los años 70  y a principios de los años 80 estaba grabando en un estilo roots reggae.
 En 1980 grabó Trow Mi Corn-No Portion of Gal para Joe Gibbs EE.UU.
En 1983, el cantante Paul Young tomó "El amor de la gente común" de nuevo en las listas del Reino Unido  al revivir el interés de Thomas  Trojan  reedito  como un "único 12 que incluyó una versión remix extendido.

Nicky Thomas (born Cecil Nicholas Thomas, 30 May 1949 – 1990) was a reggae singer who enjoyed considerable chart success in Jamaica and in the United Kingdom at the start of the 1970s.

Nicky Thomas was born Fruitful Vale, Portland, Jamaica.[1] He began work as a labourer in Kingston where he worked alongside future members of the The Gladiators.[2] His opportunity to cuts some records came when former Jiving Junior and producer Derrick Harriott wrote and produced Run Mr Nigel Run for Thomas. A huge Jamaican hit the song led to him being known as Mr Nigel for a time.[2] He was also successful with Come Home a song from the same session[2]

This was followed by a successful association with producer Joel Gibson better known as Joe Gibbs for whom Thomas recorded the plaintive Running Alone and Lonesome Road issued as by Cecil Thomas, as well as a version of Let It Be credited to Nicky Thomas.[3] Thomas' collaboration with Gibbs resulted in a number of hits including Don't Touch Me, Mama's Song and God Bless The Children.[3] Thomas and Gibbs also covered a number of well regarded R&B hits that included Tyrone Davis' Turn Back The Hands of Time and (Baby) Can I Change Your Mind and Tony Joe White's Rainy Night in Georgia. He topped the Jamaican charts in 1970 with Have A Little Faith, a record that reputedly sold 50,000 copies on its release in the UK. It failed to chart in the UK because the sales were largely through specialist music shops and not statistically counted by the official chart compilers.
In mid-1970 Nicky Thomas' interpretation of the Winstons version of "Love of the Common People" resulted in a huge UK hit. The record reached number nine on the pop chart, leading in turn to a European tour and a relocation to the United Kingdom. The original Jamaican mix (without additional strings)issued on early copies as by Cecil Thomas sold a staggering 50,000 copies in Jamaica and 175,000 in the UK.[3][4][5] The success of "Love of the Common People" ensured an album of the same name released on Trojan records that featured tracks previously cut with Joe Gibbs in Jamaica. Thomas followed up with a successful interpretation of Chris Andrews "Yesterday Man" from his self produced album Tell It Like It Is recorded in London in 1971. The title track of his album was also released as a single, the latter with a stinging attack on the BBC on the flip-side. Thomas objected to the low profile the state broadcaster was giving to reggae and in an interview with Carl Gayle vented his frustration comparing the playing of reggae on radio as akin to the use of a whore[2]

By 1973 Thomas was being produced by Dandy Livingstone releasing a third album called Images of You that including a version of his former Jamaican hit "Have a Little Faith" and the Gibbs-written club hit "Doing The Moonwalk". In 1973 he supported Desmond Dekker on a short London tour and in 1974 backed by Misty in Roots he successfully toured the UK. In 1976 he released the poignant "London", a song about the desperation of an immigrant's life in London and featured in an ITV television documentary recording What Love Is at studios in North London.[3]

Thomas style of pop-reggae had become less popular by the late 70s and by the early 80s he was recording in a roots reggae style. In 1980 he recorded Trow Mi Corn-No Portion of Gal for Joe Gibbs US distributed JGM records.[citation needed]

In 1983 the singer Paul Young took "Love of the Common People" back into the UK charts reviving interest in Thomas's version of the song that in turn resulted in Trojan reissuing it as a 12" single that included an extended remix version.

According to some sources Nicky Thomas committed suicide in 1990,[4] but the circumstances of his death have not been confirme
